The Social Roles of Olmec Stone Monuments

16 October 2011 // 2:30PM

DAM, North Building, Denver Art Museum at the Civic Center Cultural Complex, located on 13th Avenue between Broadway and Bannock in Downtown Denver, Colorado

Dr. Jillian Mollenhauer, assistant professor at Metropolitan State College of Denver, will speak on "The Social Roles of Olmec Stone Monuments." The talk will explore the use of Olmec monuments in the production, transformation, and erasure of social memory and mytho-historical narrative. Of particular importance are the political and ritual implications of these practices, suggesting sophisticated maneuvering by the elites who ruled over some of the earliest major polities in Mesoamerica.
