The Inka: Empire of The Sun

Queens University of Charlotte presents:

Speaker: Dr. Richard Chacón, Winthrop University

Sponsored by Queens' Center for Latino Studies, and the Department of World Languages

This lecture celebrates the many cultural achievements of the Inka Empire of South America. The Inka integrated peoples from different cultural traditions to form the largest Amerindian Empire in the New World. Dr. Chacón will address how the region's diverse ecological settings and resources were managed to successfully meet the needs of the society, policies for governing conquered peoples as well as how a relatively small number of Spanish conquistadors were able to topple a civilization numbering in the millions.

Dr. Richard J. Chacon is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at Winthrop University who has conducted anthropological investigations throughout Latin America and has a special interest in encouraging members of minority communities to pursue higher education. His specializations are in optimal foraging theory, Amerindian subsistence strategies, warfare, ritual violence, native beliefs, the development of complex societies, ethnohistory and the effects of globalization in addition to analyzing the impacts of missionization on indigenous peoples. His publications include: The Ethics of Anthropology and Amerindian Research: Reporting on Environmental Degradation and Warfare, North American Indigenous Warfare and Ritual Violence, Latin American Indigenous Warfare and Ritual Violence and The Taking and Displaying of Human Body Parts as Trophies by Amerindians.

FREE and open to the public.
