Hilary Morgan Leathem's presentation explores the relationship between spirit possession and historical dispossession, suggesting that Zapotec possession by ruins is in fact intimately tied to their dispossession from their own monumental heritage by Mexican state actors and agencies.

Sponsored by the Center for the Americas and Co-sponsored by Latin American Studies, Anthropology, Indigenous Studies Research Network, and History.
