John Schwaller's picture

The deadline is fast approaching for proposals , and general participation, in the Northeastern Group of Nahuatl Scholars May 2018 meeting.  The conference will run three days, from Friday, May 11 (noon) through Sunday, May 13(midday).  Proposals are evaluated on a first-come-first served basis by the organizers.  The schedule is frequently filled before the deadline.  The absolute deadline is April 1, 2018.

If you plan on attending, but not present a paper or document, please contact John Sullivan by April 1, 2018 (idiez@me.com)

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 many of the leading scholars of Nahuatl pitch in to assist with difficult words and passages. As a result, submissions of documents or passages for analysis are strongly encouraged.  Similarly the discussion of specific words or phrases encountered in research are also gladly accepted.

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 are asked to submit a proposal to one of the organizers.  Please include a 250 word abstract with the proposal.


Housing is provided for presenters and for as many participants as can be accommodated on a first-come-first-served basis.  There will be a $50 conference registration fee, which defrays the cost of breakfasts, luncheons, and the conference dinner.  There is a reduced fee for graduate students and others of limited means upon request.
