SCHOLAR TO SPEAK OF LATINOS AND RELIGIOUS CHANGE

Monday, November 1, 1999 - 16:00
Santa Barbara, CA

As the Latino population continues to grow on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, great changes will follow in the politics and religions of those areas.

David Carrasco, professor of the history of religions at Princeton University, will talk about those changes in a lecture 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4 in room 6020 of the Humanities and Social Science Building.

Carrasco, considered one of the most accomplished scholars of

pre-Columbian Mexican religion, will explore ways Latinos will contribute to the city of the future, how they are taking part in new dialogs on aesthetics and how they are influencing

new understandings of religious and racial change.

Carrasco is the author of several books, the latest the forthcoming City of Sacrifice:

The Aztec Empire and the Role of Violence in Civilization.

His appearance is co-sponsored by the UCSB's Center for Chicano Studies, the Department of Chicano Studies, the Department of Religious Studies, Latin American and Iberian Studies,

and Interdisciplinary Humanities Center.
