  • When Native Americans in Mexico could speak Latin: the long development of global history
Serge Gruzinski, an archivist paleographer (class 1973), emeritus research director at CNRS, gives a lecture about "When Native Americans in Mexico could speak Latin: the long development of global history" (« Quand les Indiens du Mexique savaient le latin : le long chemin de l’histoire globale »), as part of the bicentennial celebrations at École nationale des chartes - PSL.

Serge Gruzinski revisits his years of study and research, and will show how the education he received at the École and its surroundings gradually led him to study cultures in Mexico and Latin America, and how he distanced himself from an overly Eurocentric history in order to discover, beyond the seas, the legacy of medieval and Latin Europe among Native Americans. He will take the opportunity to remind us of a colleague who preceded him on this path: François Chevalier.
