Cultural history of pre-Columbian societies in Middle America; the emergence of Mesoamerican civilization from the earliest hunter–gatherers and first farmers to the Aztec Empire.
Learning Outcomes: • introduce the student to the unique Aztec achievement and legacy; • understand the sophisticated and complex nature of Aztec ideology and philosophy; • be able to read and understand indigenous texts and art; • contrast attitudes about warfare, sacrifice and violence, and see how violence was used to integrate Aztec society; • study the Aztec approach to urbanism; • compare concepts of gender roles and relations; • show how different types of evidence, in this case ethnohistorical and archaeological, can both complement and challenge each other; • encourage critical thinking about major issues regarding the Aztec, from the scope and nature of sacrifice to the integration of diverse populations into a multi-ethnic empire
