Past Fellowship / Grant

Researching Iconography and Materials in Guatemala and Mexico

Paola Dematte (THAD), Mexico & Guatemala: the GEforCD grant supports research towards Prof. Dematte's project “Writing, iconography and symbolism in Maya regions of Guatemala and Mexico." The grant enables a research visit to view archaeological materials in both locations, in-situ and in museums, as well as connect with contemporary textiles artisans and makers. The planned applications of Prof. Dematte's research may include: revising an older curriculum on writing and calligraphy, developing a potential new co-taught course on writing materials, and contributing to a curriculum on global issues in World Archaeology.
