The Northeastern Group of Nahuatl Scholars has finalized the dates for the May 2018 meeting.  As in the past two years, we will be increasing the conference to include three days.  Please save the following dates: Friday, May 11 (noon) through Sunday, May 13.


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 pitch in to assist with difficult words and passages. As a result, submissions of documents or passages for analysis are strongly encouraged. 


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.

The deadline for proposals is April 1, 2018.
