Andean Geochemistry Visualization Project

This project will utilize an R statistical programmer to develop a dynamic and web-based geochemical visualization system for exploring X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) data hosted on “OpenContext,” a well-established open access archaeological repository. We will also convert and import existing geochemistry data from nearly 2000 analysis records contributed by participating researchers.

Mural Painting and the Ancient Americas

In this seminar we will study the wall paintings of palaces, temples, and tombs from pre-Hispanic Mexico, Guatemala, and Peru with an emphasis on the early periods prior to the Aztec and Inca empires. Secondarily, we will examine colonial, modern, and contemporary legacies of indigenous painting in Latin America and the United States. Readings will come from art historical and archaeological literature, as well as critical sources on space and proxemics, the built environment, and embodiment and subjectivity.

Brueghel Family Research Website

This project is as a wiki-based catalogue of the paintings and drawings by Jan Brueghel, his workshop, and his imitators.
