Over the course of the past year, The Mesoamerica Center welcomed several volunteers and
interns. Each student or individual contributed to projects with the center while enriching their academic experience.
Ashley Almodóvar-Suárez, a student from UT Austin’s Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies (LLILAS), worked with the Art and Art History Collection to create a digitized version of the Fine Arts Library exhibit of pottery vessels from the Nasca, Moche, and Chimu cultures of South America. The digitization will help scholars, students, and researchers easily access information about the collection.
Adrian Gonzales, a 2017 LLILAS graduate, worked on researching, organizing, and digitizing illustrations for Dr. David Stuart’s new manuscript on the Aztec Calendar Stone. Gonzales’ contribution included seeking out permissions for the reproduction of copyrighted illustrations and helping to streamline the production of the manuscript.
Please see our article on Dr. Stuart’s new monograph, also in this newsletter, for details.
