Main Building Virtual Room 2

This illustrated lecture reflects on the 500th anniversary of the encounters among Spaniards, Natives, and Africans in Mexico. It focuses on the potent mixtures, tense negotiations and painful inequalities marking the origins of the ‘Americas’ in Mexico. We meet Malinche and Cortés, Cuauhtemoc and Sahagún, Juan Garrido and Juan Ginés de Sepúlveda, Coyolxauhqui and La Virgen de Guadalupe. At the center of this new history stood Tenochtitlan/Mexico, ‘the sum of all wonders’ and one of the main passageways linking Seville to the Silk Road and the missions on the northern frontier.
