Just came across this blog by renowned UT Art and Art History Professor and MacArthur Fellow Dr. David Stuart who specializes in the study of ancient Mayan civilization. Dr. Stuart is featured in the award-winning PBS documentary "Cracking the Maya Code" (NightFire Films, 2008). I was told that UT has the highest concentration of Mayan scholars in the country. They also host an annual conference that you can learn about here. Fascinating stuff! Perhaps I'll attend this conference myself someday.
