The Tulane Maya Symposium is a weekend of talks and workshops dedicated to the study of the Maya civilization. Since 2002, this yearly meeting has called upon scholars from a wide spectrum of specialties—archaeology, art history, cultural anthropology, epigraphy, history, and linguistics—to elucidate the many facets of Maya culture. The 2020 line-up of speakers and workshops will address food consumption practices over the span of ancient Maya prehistory.

Music Rising at Tulane invites you to Women and Movement #6: African American Women Affecting the Arts in New Orleans (Part II).

Five African American women will discuss what they think about the state of contemporary art(s) in New Orleans. This discussion will include consideration of the state of visual arts, music, literature, and the performing arts in this region.

Starting this year Tulane is going to Rome with the French and Italian Department 5 weeks' program.

Students will study Italian Literature, Culture, Society related subjects in English and are also able to take a Global Management class, taught by a Business School professor. This class is counting for their BS Major and Minor. Since the goal of the program is to encourage students to experience Rome and Italian culture in their authentic context, the majority of courses are going to be held in situ and outside of the regular class environment.

Around thirty scholars and creative writers who contributed to the new collection of essays, New Orleans: A Literary History, edited by Tulane English Professor T. R. Johnson, will gather for an all-day symposium on January 25th in the Stibbs conference room of the LBC for a sequence of four panel discussions about the intersections between -- and the implications of -- their work. The symposium will begin at 9:15am with a general welcome.  The panels will then follow, thus: I. Creolism and Cosmpolitanism in the 18th and 19th centuries; II.

Geoffrey Weiss, a PhD student in the philosophy department, will be leading a discussion on whether certain actions are not only wrong to perform, but wrong to even consider.

As part of visiting professor Deniz Karakas' ARHS 3912 Islamic Art course, the artist, Munther Yousef, will be running an Arabic Calligraphy Workshop to give the participants the unique opportunity to try their hands at writing in Arabic script and discover this beautiful art form.
