Byron's research focuses on the art and writing of pre-Hispanic Mesoamerica and the connections linking the Americas and Europe in the early modern Mediterratlantic world. While at IAS, he will study the visit to Rome in April 1529 of four Native American ambassadors from what is now Mexico--a Rome still in ruins after the Sack of 1527.
