CANCELED – “Gender, Architecture and Erasure in the Fifteenth-Century Andes”
Stella Nair (Professor, Art History, UCLA)
Women played critical roles throughout Andean History. Yet gender biases set forth in the Iberian colonization of the Andes and continued by scholars have silenced and effectively erased women’s roles in designing, constructing, and giving meaning to the Inca built environment. In this paper, Nair explores how surviving written and material records can provide critical clues to the ways in which indigenous women defined space and place in the Inca Empire.
Each CMRS Research Workshop is based on a pre-circulated research paper that the presenter—who may be a CMRS faculty member, associate, affiliate, or graduate student—wishes to discuss with colleagues. All attendees must read the paper under consideration and be prepared to contribute to the discussion.
