LIN 447

Maya Hieroglyphic Writing II

This course serves as a second, advanced follow-up course in Maya hieroglyphic writing. Its aim is to build on the students' basic knowledge and understanding of the principles and tenants of Maya hieroglyphic writing, learned in LIN 347: Maya Hieroglyphic Writing I, and apply these principles to a series of more challenging texts that are designed to hone and refine a student's skills as an epigrapher. Students will be trained in suggesting ways of establishing the meaning or readings of unknown glyphic elements in order to better understand and evaluate the overall meaning of the text. In general terms, students will integrate both archaeology and epigraphy to reach a more sophisticated understanding of Maya hieroglyphic decipherment and its implications for revising our current understandings of Classic Maya Civilization.
