The preliminary title of my Ph.d.-project is Calendar signs, calendar use and time conceptions in colonial Central Mexico. The project concerns the development of the Central Mexican calendar systems around and after the conquest, and concentrates on the new colonial forms of culture and religion that emerged in these years, as well as on the iconographical and palaeographical development of the calendars.

The project is part of a larger project, funded by the Velux Foundation, called The Origins and Developments of Central Mexican Calendars and Writing Systems (ca. AD 200 – 1600) starting the 1st of February 2019 at the Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies. The project has four participants.
