An Introduction to the Inscriptions of Northern Yucatán
Thursday 9am to 12pm

Marc Zender — Tulane University

In keeping with this year's conference theme, this workshop introduces participants to the distinctive inscriptions of Northern Yucatán, including Chichen Itza, Ek Balam, and several cities of the Puuc zone. The focus is on the unique features of the inscriptions from this area—including the so-called ‘Short Count’ calendar, ‘Puuc dates’, the emergence of Yukatekan as a written language, and the deceptively ‘anonymous’ texts of Chichen Itza—highlighting both similarities with and differences from the comparatively better known inscriptions of the southern lowlands. The intention of the workshop is to prepare participants to better understand and to enjoy the conference proceedings, and to lay the foundation for more advanced discussion of the inscriptions of Ek Balam in a follow-up workshop.

The Inscriptions of Ek Balam
Sunday 9am-12Pm

Stanley Guenter — American Foreign Academic Research

The site of Ek Balam has produced a corpus of amazing hieroglyphic inscriptions dating to the crucial Late-to-Terminal Classic transition and have provided many crucial insights into this important period in the ancient Maya history of northern Yucatan. In this workshop participants will interact with epigraphers in a discussion of a number of the most important texts from Ek Balam. No prior knowledge is required and a set of inscriptions will be provided to all participants. The workshop will be led by Drs. Stanley Guenter and Marc Zender.
