Activewear in LA
In August 2017, HYPEBEAST publications noted that “Los Angeles, California is experiencing a retail revolution” with the rise of streetwear in LA. As a Los Angeles institution, USC is uniquely positioned to influence and participate in this rise of urban and streetwear brands. To articulate this value proposition, the Marshall Retail Management Association in partnership with the Marshall Sports Business Organization and Marshall Outdoor Club is hosting an Athletic Apparel Mini-Conference entitled Activewear in LA that will bring together industry leaders, recent graduates, and current students to join in a conversation about the intersection of streetwear, fashion, fandom, and Los Angeles.
We're featuring speakers and panelists from:

Feed Your Mind Lunchtime Lecture: The Adaptive and Adoptive Nature of Aztec Religion
A talk by Kirby Farah
Lecturer, USC Department of Anthropology
“Aztec” is an often-problematized term used to refer to the political empire that rose to power in the Basin of Mexico during the early fifteenth-century. Although the people who lived within the boundaries of the empire were ethnically, linguistically, and culturally diverse, Aztec leaders used a number of economic and social strategies to unite the empire. Among these strategies was the creation of a state-sponsored religion that drew on beliefs and practices that long pre dated the empire. This talk explores the diverse origins of Aztec religion and the role of Aztec religion as a political tool.
