On September 23 and 24, 2022, Rutgers University will host an in-person conference entitled “1522: Exploring Indigenous Perspectives on the Post-conquest Years.”
We live in an era when Indigenous scholars are coming into their own. Many young people are obtaining their doctorates and entering the scholarly conversation. Yet relatively few of them study the conquest and the very early colonial period (as opposed to the more modern period). Even those who study other periods have extraordinary riches to offer any study of the conquest and its effects: besides their erudition, they have their life experiences, which have informed their work and perspectives.
We have invited six young Mexican Indigenous scholars who are passionately dedicated to preserving their people’s past and protecting their futures.
