Event Description:
Join Tulane and the New Orleans Hispanic Heritage Foundation next week to celebrate the Maya Culture and the 17th Tulane Maya Symposium at the presentation The Hidden Landscapes of the Ancient Maya by Melissa Galván.
The lecture will be part of the series of events presented at 17th Annual Tulane Maya Symposium. The symposium is a weekend of talks and workshops dedicated to the study of the Maya civilization. Since 2002, 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 Maya culture.
This year the New Orleans Hispanic Heritage Foundation will hosted and organized the event along with M.A.R.I and the Mexican Consulate that will serve as an inauguration presentation to the Tulane Maya Symposium and will celebrate collaborations between New Orleans and Latin American institutions.
Melissa Galvan is a PhD student at Tulane’s Anthropology Department. She is currently affiliated with Tulane’s Middle American Research Institute (M.A.R.I.) and her participation in the event will enrich collaborations between these organizations. This is also a unique occasion for Melissa’s professional development and will give her the opportunity to present her research to a broader audience that includes affiliates of the New Orleans Hispanic Heritage Foundation and Tulane Maya Symposium attendees and friends.
