Evening Talk: Merchants, Markets and Commerce in the Aztec World
Monday, April 24, 2017
Join us in welcoming Dr. Kenneth G. Hirth as we explore the origin and development of ranked and state-level societies in the New World. Dr. Hirth will share his research on political economy in the Aztec world and how forms of resource control lead to the development of structural inequalities within society.
Dr. Hirth is Professor of Anthropology at the Pennsylvania State University. He has conducted archaeological research throughout Latin America and has worked at such sites as San Lorenzo, Xochicalco, and Teotihuacan. His special topics of interest include exchange systems, craft production, settlement pattern studies, and preindustrial urbanism.
