Short biography
“James Lockhart, professor emeritus of history at the University of California, Los Angeles, is an expert on colonial Latin America. One of the leading experts in colonial Nahuatl, he has trained many of the present generation of scholars in Nahuatl language and society during the colonial period. Among his many publications are Nahuatl in the Middle Years: Language Contact Phenomena in Texts of the Colonial Period (with Frances Karttunen, Berkeley: Univ. of California Press, 1976), Beyond the Codices: The Nahua View of Colonial Mexico (with Arthur J. O. Anderson and Frances Berdan, Berkeley: Univ. of California Press, 1976), The Art of Nahuatl Speech: The Bancroft Dialogues (ed., with Frances Karttunen, Los Angeles: UCLA Latin American Center, 1987), Nahuas and Spaniards: Postconquest Mexican History and Philology, (Stanford: Stanford Univ. Press; and Los Angeles: UCLA Latin American Center, 1991), and The Nahuas after the Conquest: A Social and Cultural History of the Indians of Central Mexico, Sixteenth through Eighteenth Centuries (Stanford: Stanford Univ. Press, 1992). Presently James Lockhart is preparing his own pedagogical grammar of classical Nahuatl as well as working on a translation of Horacio Carochi's 1645 grammar of the Nahuatl language.” [Source of quote: http://www.yale.edu/nahuatl/main/teac...]
