Lifelong Learning Lecture: Nazca Lines-Decolonizing Interpretation of Very Large Geoglyphs in Peru thumbnail Photo

Lifelong Learning Lecture: Nazca Lines-Decolonizing Interpretation of Very Large Geoglyphs in Peru

Presented by Dr. Yumi Park Huntington, Associate Professor of Art History, Framingham State University

The Nazca Lines, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1994, are a group of large geoglyphs engraved on the ground between 500 BCE and 500 CE. They were rediscovered in the early twentieth century. Many approaches to understanding these Nazca Lines have been developed from relatively Eurocentric perspectives. Today, art historians seek to decolonize the study of ancient American arts. This lecture provides an overview of the most current research on the Lines and gives an appreciation for Nazca culture, ritual ceremony, and material creations.

Please email framinghamlibraryevents@gmail.com to join our Winter-Spring 2021 mailing list and receive Zoom links to lectures. All requests must be received by 5:00 pm on the day of the lecture.
