2013 Maya Meetings

The Art of Maya Architecture:
Cosmology and Dynasty in the Built Environment
January 15-19, 2013
The University of Texas at Austin

The Maya Meetings return to Austin on January  2013 for five days of workshops and symposium.

The 2013 Maya Meetings will explore new ideas about the art and meaning of ancient Maya architectural decoration and design. The last several years of archaeological research in the Maya region has revealed many examples of ornate temple decoration, as well as important reconsiderations of the symbolism and significance of buildings long known to archaeologists and art historians. Using archaeology, iconography, epigraphy, and the study of architectural forms, the Maya Meetings will focus on the built environment as expressions of ritual, cosmological and political space. This year we will have a number of compelling presenters, including several rising scholars in the field of Maya research.
