The Maya Project Newsletter

Issue 1, 1 March 2013
Dear supporters

This is The Maya Project first newsletter. I'd like to take the opportunity to thank you the support you have been given to the Project since the very first minute. We have exciting news that we want to share with you:
  1. We had two great exhibitions: the first one in the UK, at Loughborough University and the second one in the ISCTE-IUL, in Lisbon, Portugal. The feedback couldn't have been more positive and we are now in the process of shipping it all to Mexico. Hopefully by June the exhibition "Sharing Destinies: Science and the Maya in the 21st Century" (note the subtle change in title - no mention to the end of the world anymore!) will open in the Yucatan.
  2. The Maya Project has been entered in the 2013 Loughborough University Enterprise Awards. Very soon we will able to let you know more about this and, more importantly, how you can vote on the project.
  3. The Maya Project has welcomed its first PhD student. This studentship will officially start this coming October - in the School of Social Sciences at Loughborough University. More will be revealed soon.
  4. Finally, please be reminded that if you want to keep informed about the latest research  on Maya issues, you can always check the Mendeley reading lists that are appended to each of the photo galleries on the website. A gentle reminder about this: Living Conditions, Migration, Nutrition and Health, Religion, and Women's Roles.
Keeping you updated and always welcoming your suggestions

Muchas gracias
