Free Lecture on The Mimbres Tradition!

Phoenix, AZ, 2013 – Join the Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary and Professor Margaret C. Nelson of Arizona State University on December 4 at 7:30 p.m. for her lecture “Continuity and Change: The Mimbres Tradition and Beyond” at the Pueblo Grande Museum.  In the middle of the 12th century, the Mimbres tradition came to an end.  People left their villages throughout southwestern New Mexico and stopped making the spectacular black-on-white pottery for which the Mimbres tradition is known around the globe.  What happened?  Why did the tradition end?  Popular literature has painted this change as a mysterious disappearance.  In this talk, Professor Nelson shows both the continuity and the change that occurred in the 12th century and examines the dynamics of the prehispanic farming society known as Mimbres.  She also addresses the pitfalls of ignoring continuity and dramatizing change.  This lecture is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome.

Speaker Bio: Nelson is President’s Professor in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change and Vice Dean of Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University.  She and Michelle Hegmon collaborate on research in the Mimbres region of southwest New Mexico, focusing on social and ecological aspects of continuity and change in cultural traditions. Nelson’s 1999 book, “Mimbres During the 12th Century: Abandonment, Continuity, and Reorganization”, derives from that research.  Her recent book Mimbres Lives and Landscapes, edited with Hegmon, brings many specialists together in a popular book about archaeology and Mimbres culture.  She was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2008 and has been recognized for her teaching excellence as ASASU Centennial Professor, ASU Parents Association Professor of the Year, and ASU President’s Professor.
