The Fourth Annual Tulane Maya Symposium and Workshop will be held at the Uptown campus of Tulane University during the weekend of October 28-30, 2005. Our theme this year is "Murals and Painted Texts by Maya Ah Tz'ibob." This year's symposium offers a glimpse of Maya life through images and hieroglyphic texts painted by Maya scribes called ah tz'ibob. Murals from the northern Maya area will be the focus of discussions by archaeologists, epigraphers, and art historians, with additional examples from elsewhere in the Maya world. We will explore the earliest murals, recently discovered at Late Preclassic San Bartolo, to the latest pre-Columbian examples from Late Postclassic sites of Mayapan and Tulum.
