The universal interest in material culture has always offered a place for the encounter of knowledges from different cultures. Buthow do these knowledges circulate in a complex social context? How have our practices of knowledge impacted the knowledges of others and vice versa? Margarita Valdovinosaddresses these questions on the bases of her research in Berlin and among the N√°ayeri of Northwest Mexico. 

Margarita Valdovinos is Associate Professor at the Instituto de Investigaciones Filol√≥gicas, Universidad Nacional Aut√≥noma de M√©xico (UNAM). Her research interests are the ritual poetic practices of the N√°ayeri People of Western Mexico, the ethnographic and phonographic collections gathered between 1905 and 1907 by the German anthropologist, Konrad Theodor Preuss, and the linguistic and cultural practices of Yucatec Maya in urban and semiurban contexts.
