MARCH 15, 2012
Symposium held at Santo Domingo Business Center
The 2012 Maya Meetings in Antigua will be the first international conference devoted to the topic of ancient Maya literature. After decades of hard work at deciphering Maya hieroglyphs from ca 300-900 AD, we are left with thousands of texts written in Classic Mayan. How do we go about studying these sources as true texts? What were the different genres of writing, and how did they vary over time and space? How did scribes design their texts rhetorically and visually to convey and highlight information? How does the ancient Maya literary tradition relate to later literary expressions from the early colonial period and after?

Please join us in Antigua, Guatemala for what will be a compelling series of workshops and lectures on the cutting edge of Maya research.

Confirmed Speakers for the 2012 Maya Meetings: Dr. David Stuart, Dr. Federico Fahsen, Dr. Arturo Arias, Dr. Simon Martin, Dr. Frauke Sachse, Dr. Michael Carrasco, Dr. Daniel Law.
