Mehgan Cartier (Art)
Meghan Cartier is pursuing an MA in Art History. In her MA thesis, she argues that the pictorial language of Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican codices, or illustrated books, helped their creators unify a large, cosmopolitan, and multi-lingual empire. Meghan has given seven conference presentations on her research including, most recently, at the annual Comic Arts Conference in Anaheim. She served as a Perenchio Intern at Arte Americas, where she performed research and helped plan and present art exhibitions, and is currently serving as an Intern with the Center for Creativity and the Arts, where she helped organize the 2017 Symposium on California and Mesoamerican Native Art and Archaeology.
