Maya Symposium Teacher Workshop

View Full Event Description

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies, in collaboration with the Middle American Research Institute, will present a teacher workshop in conjunction with the 15th Annual Tulane Maya Symposium on March 9, 2018.

Since 2002, Tulane University has hosted a weekend of talks and workshops dedicated to the study of the Maya civilization of Mexico and Central America. This yearly meeting has called upon scholars from a wide spectrum of specialties—archaeology, art history, cultural anthropology, epigraphy, history, and linguistics—to elucidate the many facets of this fascinating Mesoamerican culture. In developing a broad approach to the subject matter, the conference aims to draw the interest of a wide ranging group of people—from the expert to the beginner.
