SOLAS Brown Bag Lecture Series: Cynthia Casas - The Mexican Quetzalcóal (The Feathered Serpent): Cul
Start Date: 2/19/2013Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 2/19/2013End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description:
Join LAII and SOLAS for a special presentation with Visiting Assistant Professor Cynthia Casas from the UNM Department of Spanish & Portuguese. This lecture will address an inquiry into the abundant and illuminating appearance of the Feathered Serpent or La Serpiente Emplumada Quetzalcóatl within a modern cultural and literary context. This guardian of civilization, re-creative power, wind, and penitence (in his form as a priest-king) maintains his presence across Mexican history dating back to ancient sources. The discussion will revolve around the intellectual and cultural symbol Quetzalcóatl within Mexican literary and cultural production as an archetypal emblem of revolution, change, renovation, and a vision towards the future while maintaining the anchor of Mexican 'tradition' based on an originary mythical source which resists a eurocentric paradigm of thought. This event is free and open to the public.
