John Schwaller's picture

The Northeastern Group of Nahuatl Scholars 2022 meeting will be held from April 22-24, at the University of Massachusetts – Boston.  Scholars interested in presenting may now send in their proposals, with a 250-word abstract.  Successful proposals will be notified by March 1.  After that date proposals will be accepted on a space-available basis.


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 are asked to submit a proposal to one of the organizers.  Please include a 250 word abstract with the proposal.  Each presentation should be twenty minutes long and allow for at least ten minutes of discussion.


Participants are urged to make their own housing arrangements as soon as possible, because Boston is a popular destination at nearly all times of the year.  There will be a modest registration fee. More information on registration and accommodations will be forthcoming.


The deadline for proposals is March 1, 2021.
