Approaches to Understanding Maya Art,” included discussions of identifying Maya personages through portraiture and texts. As co-presenters, we drew on our experiences in working with archaeologists and using interdisciplinary perspectives. Nygard is an assistant professor at Ripon College, Ripon, Wis., and Spencer is an associate professor at the University of Wisconson-River Falls.

Plugs

Professor Seeking Housing During Week...My name is Peter Shea. I have taught at Gustavus in various roles over the last ten years. I have returned to teach in the Philosophy Department at Gustavus Fall Semester, as a last-minute replacement. I will be teaching through Spring Semester. I need a housing option during the week; I will normally go home on weekends. This option can be a room, or a house-sitting arrangement, or a reasonably priced rental. I am allergic to cats and cigarette smoke, and I need a quiet place. I don't need a lot of space. Wifi would be helpful. I have made house-sitting and rental arrangements with Gustavus faculty for several years and can provide references as needed. I can be reached at shea0017@umn.edu or by cell phone at 612-250-4207.
