Central America - Mexico - Chiapas Ethnography - 2015

Deadline
2015-06-07
Hundreds of thousands of undocumented migrants from Central America and beyond cross Mexico each year on their way to the United States. Many of these people walk across Mexico or ride on the top of dangerous cargo trains known as la bestia (“The beast”). These migrants carry backpacks loaded with food, clothing, and other provisions on their often dangerous journeys across multiple countries. Since 2009, the Undocumented Migration Project (UMP) has been using a variety of anthropological methods (e.g., ethnography, archaeology, forensic science) to understand the experiences of clandestine border crossers on the US/Mexico border and the Mexico/Guatemala border. In 2015, the UMP will begin a new project in the southern Mexican town of Palenque (Chiapas) focused on documenting the experiences of migrants preparing to cross Mexico.

Central America - Mexico - Ethnohistory Field Program - 2014

Deadline
2014-06-02
The purpose of this field program is to introduce students to innovative research methods in the integration of archaeology, art history, ethnohistory, and ethnography. Mexico in general and the vast state of Oaxaca in particular create an ideal research environment, where the indigenous cultures constructed monumental sites, ruled over city-states, invented complex writing systems, and crafted among the finest artistic traditions in the world, some of which are still perpetuated to this day. The clash of the Indigenous and the European worlds in the 16th century created a most unique culture, the legacy of which underlies the modern nation of Mexico. By traveling through the mountains, valleys, and coasts of Oaxaca and immersing themselves in this rich study environment, students will gain direct experience with archaeological, ethnohistorical, and ethnographic research methods and resources. In addition, the course aims to provide insights into the practicalities of conducting academic research in Mexico, by visiting research institutes and hearing on-site lectures from local experts. A broader question to be addressed is how new modes of inquiry in archaeology can reflect on approaches more consistent with the logic inherent in the scientific method. This interactive course will explore methods that avoid one-sided dependencies, and will link the past and present through the exploration of those surviving ancient sites and living communities which are directly referenced in the ethnohistorical records. Note that this Travel Study Program does not involve active participation in an archaeological dig.

Deadline
2015-05-29

Summer 2015 will mark the second year of the Chiquilistagua Archaeological Field School directed by Dr. Justin Lowry (George Mason University) and Jason Paling (co-director -Plymouth State University). The goals of the Chiquilistagua Archaeological Project are to explore and investigate settlements in the so-called “intermediate zone,” a diverse ecological and cultural area that stretches from the southern Maya periphery in Honduras and El Salvador to the northern edges of the Great Nicoya region. Their investigations in Nicaragua are concentrated primarily in central Nicaragua from the southwestern edge of Lake Managua to the Pacific Ocean. The intent of the project is to test the validity of models proposing an association of this area with the economic and political periphery of the southern Mesoamerican people and cultures. Archaeological investigations of a recently discovered pre–Columbian settlement in Chiquilistagua, Nicaragua will help to contribute to our understanding of the variety of cultural diversity found throughout Central America. Our long term research goal is to document household activities among sites located near and around the present day town of Chiquilistagua; a settlement located approximately six kilometers southwest of the present day capital of Managua. The town and site are located on the border between the Nicaragua Depression and the Pacific Volcanic Cordillera
