Fanning the Sacred Flame: Mesoamerican Studies in Honor of
H. B. Nicholson contains twenty-two original papers in tribute
to H. B. "Nick" Nicholson, a pioneer of Mesoamerican research. His
intellectual legacy is recognized by Mesoamerican archaeologists,
art historians, ethnohistorians, and ethnographers--students,
colleagues, and friends who derived inspiration and encouragement
from him throughout their own careers. Each chapter, which presents
original research inspired by Nicholson, pays tribute to the
teacher, writer, lecturer, friend, and mentor who became a legend
within his own lifetime.
Covering all of Mesoamerica across all time periods,
contributors include Patricia R. Anawalt, Alfredo López Austin,
Anthony Aveni, Robert M. Carmack, David C. Grove, Richard D.
Hansen, Leonardo López Luján, Kevin Terraciano, and more. Eloise
Quiñones Keber provides a thorough biographical sketch, detailing
Nicholson's academic and professional journey. Publication
supported, in part, by The Patterson Foundation and several private
Subjects: Sociology, Anthropology
