Program Description:
ANTH 3771 Pyramids, Gods and Mummies Mexico 2
Hugo Benavides 

Through lectures, reading and site visits to archaeological and historical sites around Puebla and Mexico City, this anthropology class will assess how migrating notions of culture have served to enable contesting identities across and through the border between the United States and Mexico. The course both explores the complex relationship between identity, history and culture as it is expressed in the millenarian migration of communities throughout the Mesoamerican landscape and challenges the authoritative picture officially espoused by the governing bodies of both countries. Faculty lecturers from Universidad Iberoamericana in Puebla, and visits to key archeological sites in Teotihuacán and Cholula as well as to communities like Cuetzalán and San Juan de Otlanzingo, will provide materials for small research papers and projects. Class work and regular structured reflection will help students see and understand how sometimes similar, and at times differing notions of what it means to be American have permeated the landscape of the continent, and continue to fuel our cultural and political identities.
