About P. Guillermo Ramón Celis

Guillermo is a Ph.D. candidate in Archaeology and Social Context at the Anthropology Department of IU. His research interests focus on the people dwelling in the Central Valleys of Oaxaca and the Isthmus of Tehuantepec from prehispanic to contemporary times. He is working to understand the different connections between these two regions, especially identity and economic networks, and how they were configured. In addition, using remote sensing technologies such as LiDAR and Aerial photogrammetry, Guillermo is creating the map of the City of Guiengola. Ultimately, he is interested in analyzing the aspects of human migratory processes and Zapotec colonialism in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, Mexico.

He runs the Guiengola Archaeological Project in Oaxaca, Mexico, funded by the Wenner-Gren Foundation and the College of Arts & Sciences of Indiana University Bloomington.
