Additional Information

Ethnobotany Seminar Series with UCLA Humanities Department Explore the Flower World with Dr. David Shorter in the third lecture of our Plant Worlds Ethnobotany Seminar Series. The Flower World was referenced in the pottery, codices, murals, songs, myths, and ceremonies across Mesoamerica. Contemporary Indigenous communities continue to speak of, about, and from this powerful realm of healing and sacrifice. Are we simply seeing a Utopianism that spread across the Americas and across thousands of years? Or, as Dr. Shorter suggests, might the Flower World be a living, present indication of a multiverse, best understood ontologically and inter-dimensionally?
