The Mapas Project:  Indigenous Pictorial Manuscripts of Early Mexico with University of Oregon researcher Stephanie Wood

Mesoamerican mapas are pictorial manuscripts created by Indigenous communities to document their histories and relationships with place. Join historian Stephanie Wood for a discussion of the nature and evolution of mapas during 300 years of Spanish occupation—and learn how the UO's Wired Humanities Project is expanding digital access to these key cultural resources.
