Expanding Mesolore:Adding Two, Pedagogically-Interactive Aztec Documents to an Interdisciplinary Project for Teaching and Lea

The addition of two Aztec primary documents and related teaching materials to an existing website on Mesoamerican history.

The project focuses on Mesoamerica's pre- and post-1520 period. It proposes (1) to add two more interactive "laboratories" of Aztec-related primary documents, the Lienzo de Tlaxcala and the Matricula de Tributos, to an existing multimedia, teaching-and-research, online resource, "Mesolore." Mesolore has concentrated, to date, on Mixtec documents, although its supplementary materials (debates, lectures, interpretive essays, tutorials, maps, still and video images and audio files) cover all of Mesoamerica. In addition, the project proposes (2) to complement those interactive laboratories with four interpretive essays by faculty consultants with expertise in the relevant fields, (3) to evaluate the results, and (4) to disseminate them. The project will take two years to complete.
