Reminder – Deadline approaching


Important announcement

The Northeastern Group of Nahuatl Scholars 2022 meeting

March 1, deadline for proposals



We are pleased to announce that the meeting locale has changed.  We will be meeting in the Tozzer Building at Harvard University from April 22-24. Included in the agenda will be a visit to the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology and a special viewing of Tozzer Library's early colonial Indigenous-language manuscripts.


 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.


There will be a modest registration fee. More information on registration, accommodations, and meal opportunities will be forthcoming.


The deadline for proposals is March 1, 2022.
