Nazca Lines-Decolonizing Interpretation of Very Large Geoglyphs in Peru

Thursday, May 6, 2021

Join Dr. Yumi Park Huntington, Associate Professor of Art History at Framingham State University, for this Lifelong Learning Lecture. Register at by 5pm on May 6. The Nazca Lines, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1994, are a group of large geoglyphs engraved on the ground between 500 BCE and 500 CE. They were rediscovered in the early twentieth century. Many approaches to understanding these Nazca Lines have been developed from relatively Eurocentric perspectives. Today, art historians seek to decolonize the study of ancient American arts. This lecture provides an overview of the most current research on the Lines and gives an appreciation for Nazca culture, ritual ceremony, and material creations.
