Professor of History James Lockhart from the University of California at Los Angeles spoke on "Indian History from Indian Language and Documents" in the Aula. The founder of “new philology,” a school of historical thought that sought to understand the history of colonized indigenous people through their own writing and records, Lockhart studied colonial Latin America and the indigenous speakers of the Nahuatl language.  His The Art of Nahuatl Speech: The Bancroft Dialogues appeared in 1987.
