The Maya Meetings

The 2010 Maya Meetings will take place at UT-Austin’s new academic and conference center for Mesoamerican studies, the Casa Herrera, a beautifully restored 17th-century mansion located near the center of Antigua, Guatemala’s colonial capital. The Casa Herrera is a new research, conference and teaching facility operated by the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Texas at Austin in collaboration with the Fundación Pantaleón. The Maya Meetings will offer a combination of learning workshops and academic lectures. Three workshops focusing on hieroglyphs and iconography will run for four days from March 16 through 19, accompanied by two courtyard lectures during each evening. The topic of the 2010 Maya Meetings will focus on new developments in the study of early Maya iconography and writing, focusing on the sites of Kaminaljuyu, Takalik Abaj, Izapa, San Bartolo and others.
