2010 Maya Hieroglyphic Workshop
Ancient Maya Hieroglyphic Workshop
October 1 - 3, 2010
The Department of Anthropology will sponsor an Ancient Maya Hieroglyphic Workshop on October 1-3, 2010, at Texas State University. The workshop will meet from 9 am-5 pm in Centennial Hall 157 (Teaching Theater) at Texas State University.
The workshop focuses on inscriptions from Quirigua, Guatemala, and will be led by epigrapher and art historian Matthew G. Looper (California State University, Chico). Fees, including a discounted student rate, apply to the event organized by the Center for the Symbolism and Art of the Ancient Americas with support from the University Lectures Series.
As part of the events, at 7 pm, Friday, October 1, 2010, there will be a free public screening of the award-winning documentary Breaking the Maya Code (Nightfire Films, 2008 – 120 min.) on the decipherment of the ancient script. This also will be in Centennial Hall 157 and is free and open to the public. This version runs nearly twice as long as the version aired earlier on PBS television.
