25th European Maya Conference: Warsaw, Poland

Boundaries, frontiers and divisions in the Maya area and beyond

Call for Papers

Due to the present global circumstances and the fact that in the Warsaw EMC we will have the opportunity to have conference presentations online, we have extended the call-for-papers until June 30th.

The Call for Papers for the EMC in Warsaw is open.

The 25th Annual European Maya Conference is co-organised by WAYEB — the European Association of Mayanists — and the University of Warsaw in Poland. The conference will begin with an introductory lecture to the workshops on Monday, November 16th, followed by three-day workshops, and will conclude with a two-day symposium held from Friday to Saturday, November 20-21.

The focus of the conference will be on different forms, aspects and concepts of divisions, boundary-making, and separation in Maya culture. We encourage the participants to tackle the theme of frontiers and boundaries from a variety of perspectives, including geographic, linguistic, political, social, religious, or cultural criteria, throughout the twenty-five centuries of pre-Hispanic Maya culture and the colonial times. We also invite other Mesoamerican scholars to contribute to this discussion, with particular emphasis on probing cross-cultural frontiers and borderlands, including the limits between the traditionally conceived Mesoamerica and its neighboring areas. As possible, presentations will be grouped into thematically related sessions.

Submission of abstracts

The Wayeb Conference Board invites the submission of abstracts concerning the conference theme from a variety of perspectives and disciplinary backgrounds. Presentations in English and Spanish will be accepted. Abstracts may not exceed 250 words.

Contributions of authors who submit more than one abstract including co-authored papers will not be considered and co-authorship needs to be indicated upon submission.

The abstracts will be forwarded without the author’s particulars to an anonymous Review Committee that will be selected by the Wayeb Conference Board.
