Michael Malpass (Anthropology) to speak about his recently published book, The Distant Provinces in the Inka Empire, at Cornell
Contributed by David Turkon on 03/03/2010
Michael Malpass will present a talk on his recent book The Distant Provinces in the Inka Empire: Toward a Deeper Understanding of Inka Provincialism at the Cornell Store on Wednesday, March 10, at 4:30 pm.
Who was in charge of the widespread provinces of the great Inka Empire of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries: Inka from the imperial heartland or local leaders who took on the trappings of their conquerors, either by coercion or acceptance? By focusing on provinces far from the capital of Cuzco, this multidisciplinary volume provides up-to-date information on the strategies of domination asserted by the Inka across the provinces far from their capital and the equally broad range of responses adopted by the peoples they conquered.
Following the presentation Professor Malpass will lead a question and answer session. Light refreshments will be available throughout the event, and copies of Distant Provinces in the Inka Empire will be available at a 20% discount for this special event.
