Nahuatl Texts and Contexts: Annual Meeting of the Association of Nahuatl Scholars


The Association of Nahuatl Scholars 2023 meeting will be held April 27-29 at Brown University, Providence RI.  We hope to arrange a viewing of relevant materials at the John Carter Brown Library. The JCB is supporting our meeting in Providence, which is being hosted by the Brown Center for the Study of the Early Modern World.


A formal call for papers will be issued in a few months, once final details have been arranged.


In preparing for the meeting, the Association seeks two types of presentations.

Nahuatl Documents:

As always, we hope that a significant portion of the time will be dedicated to the group study of original Nahuatl language manuscripts. This is a unique opportunity in which most of the leading scholars of Nahuatl collaborate to assist with difficult words and passages. It is one of the most rewarding and exciting parts of the conference. Submissions of documents or passages for analysis are strongly encouraged.  These sessions will be allotted one hour each.

Scholarly Presentations:

Those interested in presenting a scholarly research paper on some aspect of Nahuatl, Nahua ethnohistory, art history of the Nahua, or any other topic having to do with Nahuatl or the Nahua will be asked to submit a proposal to one of the organizers.  Presentations will be allotted 20 minutes with 10 minutes for discussion.
