Archaeology in Revolutionary Mexico, 1920-1940

A book-length study about the connections between archeology and nation-building during the first two decades after the Mexican Revolution.

“Excavating Identity: Archaeology in Revolutionary Mexico, 1920-1940” examines the making of archaeological patrimony and an official Indian past during the first two decades of Mexico's revolutionary regime. The manuscript also looks at how the government's archaeological projects impacted native peoples at the ruins. With the NEH Summer Stipend, I will explore this formative stage in Mexican archaeology through research in Mexico City archives. My goal is to spend two consecutive months analyzing documents in two Mexico City archives that are essential to the completion of my manuscript: the Historical Archive of the National Museum of Anthropology (AHMNA) and the National Library of Anthropology and History (BNAH).
