The South-Central Conference on Mesoamerica is a regional conference that provides a venue to bring together scholars in the fields of archaeology, ethnography, art history, and others, as well as the general public, to share information and interpretations on current research focused on the cultures of the Mesoamerican region. The conference is free and open to the public.

Thank you to everyone who made the 9th Annual South Central Conference on Mesoamerica a great success! This year the conference was co-sponsored by the San Antonio Museum of Art and the University of Texas at San Antonio. We hope that you will join us for the 10th Annual South-Central Conference on Mesoamerica next October in Baton Rouge, hosted by Louisiana State University.

This was our largest year yet with over 50 presentations by scholars that came from near and far. The Keynote Address by Dr. Vera Tiesler and the screening of the film “Out of the Maya Tombs” were among the highlights of conference. The San Antonio Museum of Art was a wonderful host for all of the events and we appreciate the staff’s generosity of their time and efforts. This collaboration helped us to share research with the public in valuable ways. We also greatly appreciate the sponsorship by Ruta Maya Organic Coffee and Freetail Brewing Co. who kept us hydrated and happy. And finally, to the zotz (bat) who made a special, last minute appearance, we thank you for the extra entertainment 🙂
