Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

This course is an exploration of Maya understandings of their own history as it is reflected in ancient texts. We will begin by looking at episodes in Colonial and recent history to illustrate some of the ways Maya thinking about history may differ from more familiar genres. We will then review basic aspects of precolumbian Maya writing, but we will focus mainly on analyzing texts from one or more Classic period Maya cities.

When Offered Fall.

Comments Co-meets with ANTHR 4216/ARKEO 4216/LATA 4215.
