Works-in-Progress Session: Xoquiiac Eoatoc in Eztli / The Rising Stench of Blood

Thu 3/7/2024 • 1PM - 2PM PST

Digital Event

Using Book 12 of Bernardino de Sahagún’s Historia general de las cosas de Nueva España written around 1555 in Nahuatl and Bernal Díaz del Castillo’s Historia verdadera de la conquista de la Nueva España completed around 1568 in Spanish as its central objects of analysis, doctoral student Rebecca Smith's study investigates the way 16th-century chroniclers–from both Mexica and Spanish traditions–invoke seemingly identical olfactory associations with bloodshed as they recount their sides of the Spanish-Mexica War (1519-1521).
