This is an advance summary of a forthcoming article in the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Latin American History. Please check back later for the full article.
A teaching and research tool for scholars and students of Mesoamerica, Mesolore is currently available as a free, open-access, Spanish-English bilingual website (www.mesolore.org). Mesolore combines interactive primary-source documents from 15th- and 16th-century Central Mexico and Oaxaca with explanatory tutorials, an archive of primary-source alphabetic documents, an atlas, syllabi and lesson plans, and audio and video commentaries by scholars and activists from a dozen disciplines working in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. These supporting materials thus expand the scope of Mesolore’s engagements across space (from Guatemala to Canada to Germany) and time (from the classic period to the 21st century).
