Call for Added papers - AHAs 2024

I am planning to attend the AHAs next January and would really love to join a panel. Those of you who are familiar with my work know that I work with colonial Nahuatl religious texts. I recently finished a critical English translation of Sahagún's collection of Nahuatl sermons while on an NEH fellowship and would like to present a paper – but I have no panel as of yet. Please let me know if you or anyone you know is looking for another presenter!

Templo Mayor news late November 2022

Reuters has published an article on recent excavations at the Templo Mayor, digging deeper into the cache previously reported containing sea creatures an a jaguar. Leonardo López Luján, Director of the Templo Mayor project, has proposed that they might have found the burial of Ahuitzotl. López Luján previously conjectured that Ahuitzotl was buried under the Tlalteuctli stone discovered a few years ago.

 

Xochiayotl - Strategy reconsidered

A recent article questions the number of captives from the Flower Wars (Xochiyaotl). Robert William Martin proposes that the capture of enemies was not an overriding issue in Mexica military strategy.
