As difficult as it is to not drop everything and make tracks to New Orleans, the EMT schedule is keeping me from making it to this year’s Maya Symposium (sponsored by MARI and the Stone Center, hosted by Tulane) at the end of March— and the continual e-mail reminders aren’t making this decision any easier.
I started this tumblr as a place to channel my enthusiasm over classic mesoamerican culture and history to the vacuum of internet, pointed safely away from overwhelming my friends, and yet the blended material has shifted more to everyday life stuff. I’d like to cover both, to good effect. Hopefully in the coming weeks I can get back to researching and writing toward this initial purpose. We’ll see.
But seriously, the Maya symposium looks like it’s going to be great. Anyone in the area should stop by, or at least check out the keynote at the NOMA. Participation costs little, and you’ll be bumping elbows with the best experts in the field. March 20-23, 2014. At Tulane, NOLA.
