Tradition and Innovation in Mesoamerican Cultural History contains essays
by leading authorities in their fields and rising scholars, covering important
areas in a wide range of disciplines. This book is the result of a highly
successful conference on Mesoamerica held at California State University,
Los Angeles in May 2009, organized as a homage to the distinguished
Mesoamerican scholar Tatiana Proskouriakoff (1909-1985) and as a
commemoration of the first centenary of her birth. This volume contains
papers ranging from linguistics, archeology, and ethnohistory, to art history
and literary studies, representing cutting-edge contributions to all of these
disciplines. While several papers relate to matters related to the Mayan
cultural area, other contributors also provide recent research on other major
Mesoamerican cultures such as the Nahuatl and Zapotec, thus
encompassing all of the major geographic areas that constitute the cultural
hub of Mesoamerica.

The volume is divided into four main sections: Tatiana A. Proskouriakoff and
Mesoamerican Studies, Oaxaca and the Colonial Zapotec, Maya Writing,
Ideology, and Funerary Rituals, and From the Mesoamerican Ballgame to
Modern Representations of the Aztecs in Chicano Art and Literature.

Octavio Armand, Roberto Cantú, Jessica Joyce Christie, Michela Craveri,
Michael Galant Ricardo García, Ignacio López-Calvo, Stephanie Lozano,
Pamela Munro, Kevin Terraciano, Rogelio Valencia Rivera, and Tyson White
have all provided original work that is comprehensive and interdisciplinary.
The editors, Roberto Cantú, Professor of English and Chicano Studies, and
Aaron Sonnenschein, Assistant Professor of English, both at California State
University, Los Angeles, have provided a carefully edited book that will be an
important source of information, interest, and enjoyment for our readers.
