TRANSFORMATIONS: THE ISTHMUS ZAPOTEC OF JUCHITÁN, 1967-2018 Open Fall Semester 2018 at the Mather’s Museum of World Culture

Anya Peterson Royce, Chancellor’s Professor of Anthropology and Comparative Literature at IU, took her first photographs of the Isthmus Zapotec of Juchitán, Oaxaca in July of 1967, when a delegation from that city performed at the Guelaguetza in the outdoor performing space on the outskirts of Oaxaca City. Her long ethnographic involvement with Juchitán, its people and their remarkable stories now spans 51 years; five generations of books, blogs, and articles; and over 16,000 photographs. This exhibit features a selection of some of those images. The exhibit will be open through December 16, 2018.​​
