ANSC 433 - The Ancient & Living Maya: Anthropological Perspectives on Maya Culture

Credits: (3)
Instructional Method: Three hours lecture.
Prerequisites: ANSC 106 , ANSC 301 .
An exploration of Maya culture from a wholistic anthropological perspective. We will discuss the origin and development of Maya cities in the pre-Columbian past, examine what transpired when Spanish Conquistadors arrived in the region, and follow the changes that occurred in Maya culture from the Colonial Era to the present. Students will stretch their anthropological muscles by engaging with linguistic analyses, ethnographic studies, ethnohistorical sources, and old-fashioned dirt archaeology.
