Figurillas Masculinas Con Atributos De Rango, Del Centro De México, Durante El Formativo, Patricia Ochoa Castillo 2020 Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia, Museo Nacional de Antropología, México

Figurillas Masculinas Con Atributos De Rango, Del Centro De México, Durante El Formativo, Patricia Ochoa Castillo

Congreso internacional sobre iconografía precolombina, Barcelona 2019. Actas.

Las figurillas del periodo Formativo (2300 a.C.-100 d.C.), de la Cuenca de México, modeladas en barro, antropomorfas y sólidas, se distinguen por ser representaciones realistas, y al parecer, algunas de ellas son versiones a escala que muestran personajes, es decir, son pequeñas esculturas inspiradas en algunos miembros de la comunidad que se destacan por sus atributos o parafernalia. Estos atributos son indicadores de un claro reconocimiento de diferenciación social, asociados con personajes que desempeñaban roles específicos dentro de la sociedad y que, al parecer, son recreaciones de jugadores de pelota.

Figurines from the Formative period (2300 b ...


Iconografía En El Paisaje. Vida Cotidiana Y Prácticas Sociales En El Arte Rupestre En El Noreste De México, Luis J. Abejez, Cristina Corona Jamaica 2020 Universitat de Barcelona

Iconografía En El Paisaje. Vida Cotidiana Y Prácticas Sociales En El Arte Rupestre En El Noreste De México, Luis J. Abejez, Cristina Corona Jamaica

Congreso internacional sobre iconografía precolombina, Barcelona 2019. Actas.

El noreste de México es una de las áreas más ricas en arte rupestre del país. Durante miles de años, los grupos humanos que habitaron esta región dejaron constancia de su presencia por medio de las pinturas y grabados que realizaron en cuevas, abrigos y rocas. El estudio interdisciplinar de este lenguaje visual puede proporcionar una valiosa información para el conocimiento de esas poblaciones. Entre otros aspectos, permite una aproximación a su pensamiento simbólico, la percepción que tenían del mundo físico y espiritual, y cómo percibieron y utilizaron el territorio en su cotidianidad.

Northeastern Mexico is one of the richest ...

Los Textiles Mayas Contemporáneos De Yucatán (México) En El Espejo De La Iconografía Precolombina, Danielle Dupiech Cavaleri

Congreso internacional sobre iconografía precolombina, Barcelona 2019. Actas.

La investigación llevada con unas veinte bordadoras de 50 a 105 años de edad en los pueblos de Maní, Xaya, Xócen y Xohuayan ha permitido rescatar la información contenida en los dechados que las mujeres conservan preciosamente. Los datos recopilados que fueron analizados, comparándolos con elementos encontrados en los informes publicados sobre excavaciones arqueológicas; con la iconografía presente en la cerámica prehispánica; con los motivos de los atavíos de los personajes que aparecen en las estelas, los bajos relieves, las estatuas de barro y las pinturas murales; con los pictogramas encontrados en los códices Mayas; con los mitos y leyendas ...


Tradiciones Plásticas Y Ontologías: Problemas En Torno Al Estudio De La Iconografía Del Período Medio Del No. Argentino, María Alba Bovisio 2020 Universidad de Buenos Aires

Tradiciones Plásticas Y Ontologías: Problemas En Torno Al Estudio De La Iconografía Del Período Medio Del No. Argentino, María Alba Bovisio

Congreso internacional sobre iconografía precolombina, Barcelona 2019. Actas.

En este trabajo se analizan piezas producidas entre los siglos VII-XI, en el valle de Hualfín (Catamarca, Argentina) con fines cúlticos y ceremoniales, que presentan una iconografía de notable complejidad. Al respecto se propone indagar: el posible significado de las imágenes metafóricas y metonímicas que articulan humanos, felinos, saurios y reptiles, en relación al poder sagrado (lo waka) y, el rol que juega cada “tradición plástica” (escultores, grabadores, pintores) en la materialización, a través de los objetos e imágenes, del orden ontológico y cosmológico vigente en las comunidades del noroeste argentino en época prehispánica.

In this paper are analyzed pieces ...

Promoting The Consumer Citizen: Seals, Spectacles, And The Gendered Consumer In Depression-Era America, Danielle B. Wetmore 2020 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Promoting The Consumer Citizen: Seals, Spectacles, And The Gendered Consumer In Depression-Era America, Danielle B. Wetmore

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This thesis will argue that New Deal legislation accounted for increased importance placed on consumers and the articulation of consumer citizenship as female during the Great Depression. Once New Deal programs and legislation determined and legitimized the consumer citizen, the consumer citizen exercised influence though purchasing power. Analyzing the ways the federal government defined women as consumer citizens through programs like the National Recovery Administration’s Blue Eagle Campaign offers important insight into who was considered to have a voice. Notions of citizenship define groups by who has the necessary attributes and qualifications—in this case the means to purchase ...

Intimate Nevada: Artists Respond, Lauren Paljusaj, Anne Savage 2020 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Intimate Nevada: Artists Respond, Lauren Paljusaj, Anne Savage

Calvert Undergraduate Research Awards

Creative Works Winner

Most of us know Nevada beyond the Strip. It’s a place of houses, of shopping plazas, of movie theaters, and grocery stores. A place of hotels that are also places of work. A place of basins, ranges, vistas, and nature. A place of personal history. For Intimate Nevada: Artists Respond, curators Lauren Paljusaj (ENG BA ‘20) and Anne Savage (CFA BA ‘22), draw on photographs found in UNLV Special Collections to uncover the intimate visuality of a Nevada of past centuries. The exhibition focuses on how the imaged built landscape of early 20th century Southern Nevada ...

Park Blues Langston Hughes, Racial Exclusion, And The Park Ballad, Margaret Konkol 2020 Old Dominion University

Park Blues Langston Hughes, Racial Exclusion, And The Park Ballad, Margaret Konkol

English Faculty Publications

This chapter draws attention to the lack of parks and nature recreation amenities during the 1920s and 1930s in predominantly African American city neighborhoods through Langston Hughes’s political poetry, specifically his blues-inflected ballad “Park Bench,” as well as “Chicago’s Black Belt” “Restrictive Covenants,” and “One Way Ticket.” Through the figure of the tramp/vagrant/bum, “Park Bench” voices a protest against inequality mapped into city space. Asserting that access to nature should be a fundamental condition of a democratic society, the poem situates the park bench as a charged site for public dialogue. The chapter argues that this ...

Current Research: Archaeological Investigations At The Shackleford Creek Site (41sm494), Smith County, Texas, Timothy K. Perttula, Bo Nelson 2020 Heritage Research Center, Stephen F. Austin State University

Current Research: Archaeological Investigations At The Shackleford Creek Site (41sm494), Smith County, Texas, Timothy K. Perttula, Bo Nelson

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

An archaeological survey in 2018 of the proposed Shackleford Creek Residential Development, a federally permitted project, in the upper Angelina River basin in East Texas by Tejas Archaeology identified the ancestral Caddo Shackleford Creek site (41SM494). Because the site was only investigated with a few shovel tests during the archaeological survey, although sufficient to identify the site extent and general characteristics of deposit depth and artifact content, but appeared to contain intact archaeological deposits of ancestral Caddo age, Nelson and Perttula recommended that the site warranted further evaluation by a plan of test excavations to determine its research potential and ...


The Ancestral Caddo Ceramic Vessel Sherd And Ceramic Pipe Sherd Assemblage From The A. C. Saunders Site (41an19) In The Upper Neches River Basin, Anderson County, Texas, Timothy K. Perttula 2020 Heritage Research Center, Stephen F. Austin State University

The Ancestral Caddo Ceramic Vessel Sherd And Ceramic Pipe Sherd Assemblage From The A. C. Saunders Site (41an19) In The Upper Neches River Basin, Anderson County, Texas, Timothy K. Perttula

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

The A. C. Saunders site (41AN19) is an important ancestral Caddo settlement in the upper Neches River basin in Anderson County in East Texas. The site is one of only a few ancestral Caddo sites with mound features in the upper Neches River basin, particularly those that are known to date after ca. A.D. 1400, but this part of the upper Neches River basin, including its many tributaries, such as Caddo Creek just to the south and west, was widely settled by Caddo farmers after that time. These Caddo groups left behind evidence of year-round occupied settlements with house ...


Current Research: Selected Historic Caddo Allen Phase Vessels From The Deshazo Site (41na13/27) On Bayou Loco, Nacogdoches County, Texas, Timothy K. Perttula 2020 Heritage Research Center, Stephen F. Austin State University

Current Research: Selected Historic Caddo Allen Phase Vessels From The Deshazo Site (41na13/27) On Bayou Loco, Nacogdoches County, Texas, Timothy K. Perttula

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

Continuing with the on-going study of ancestral Caddo ceramic vessels from East Texas Caddo sites, I document three ceramic vessels and a fourth ceramic vessel section from excavations at the Deshazo site (41NA13/27) by The University of Texas at Austin (UT) in 1975-1976. The Deshazo site is the best studied Allen phase settlement in East Texas, and the archaeological investigations there indicates it was a small centralized hamlet of an affiliated group with a series of circular structures and an associated household or family cemetery. Most sites of the Allen phase were apparently occupied for only short periods of ...


Current Research: Update On The Hodges Collection Of Native American Artifacts, Mary Beth D. Trubitt 2020 Arkansas Archeological Survey

Current Research: Update On The Hodges Collection Of Native American Artifacts, Mary Beth D. Trubitt

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

During the 1930s and 1940s, Thomas and Charlotte Hodges of Bismarck, Arkansas, surface collected and excavated artifacts from archaeological sites in Arkansas. Most came from ancestral Caddo sites in the Middle Ouachita River valley in Clark and Hot Spring counties, with a small portion originating from Southeast Arkansas sites. The Hodgeses, along with Vere Huddleston and Robert Proctor of Arkadelphia, were amateur archeologists at a time when there were few professional archeologists working in the state. Philip Phillips of Harvard University photographed some of the Hodges and Huddleston collections during his 1939 Ouachita River Valley survey, and Alex Krieger from ...


Current Research: Preliminary Survey Of The Eastern Half Of The Boxed Spring Site (41ur30), Cambria Haley, Crystal A. Dozier 2020 Department of Anthropology, Wichita State University

Current Research: Preliminary Survey Of The Eastern Half Of The Boxed Spring Site (41ur30), Cambria Haley, Crystal A. Dozier

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

The Boxed Springs site (41UR30) is an Early Caddo site located in East Texas near the Sabine River. This site covers roughly 15.6 acres and contained at least four mounds, middens, and an extended cemetery. The site's location has been known since the late 1950s, with a series of unconnected avocational and professional archaeological investigations as well as unfortunate looting. As one of the few Early Caddo sites in Texas that contain multiple mounds, the Boxed Springs site is poised to provide great insight into Early Caddo mound construction technologies, settlement patterns, subsistence strategies, and trade and exchange.


Current Research: A Pilot Study In The Use Of Pxrf Analysis Of Caddo Ceramics, Tom Middlebrook, C. Colleen Hanratty 2020 Heritage Research Center, Stephen F. Austin State University

Current Research: A Pilot Study In The Use Of Pxrf Analysis Of Caddo Ceramics, Tom Middlebrook, C. Colleen Hanratty

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

Wilson "Dub" Crook III's paper presented to the East Texas Archeological Conference concerning the use of X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) in sourcing turquoise artifacts sparked an interest in utilizing pXRF to resolve an old Caddo ceramic research question. While XRF has been used in archaeology for more than 60 years, and there have been applications in ceramic studies, a recent review of the 9th Edition of The Archaeology, Bioarchaeology, Ethnohistory, and History of the Caddo Indian Peoples of Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas, a comprehensive bibliography, did not yield a single reference to a pXRF study in Caddo ceramics. This ...
