Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed


Resilience and Sustainability:
What Are We Learning from the Maya and Other Ancient Cultures?

Thursday, November 7, 2013 - Saturday, November 9, 2013


Archaeologists working in the Maya area, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and around the world are uncovering evidence of social change related to shifts in resources, political power, and climate. As archaeologists and their collaborators work to make their findings accessible to scholars in other fields and to the public, they are questioning traditionally held notions of societal collapse and failure and re-examining datasets and questions. Paying particular attention to temporal and geographic scales, they are using lessons from the past in order to contribute more directly to discussions of survival, resilience, renewal, and sustainability for today and the future. At the same time, environmental scientists are using archaeological data and knowledge to help inform their models and reconstructions of past environments and landscape change. And in broader discussions involving scholars, policy makers, community leaders, and others, traditional notions of sustainability for present and future generations are being challenged by such concepts as resilience as a means to persist despite disruptions. This conference for scholars and others interested in archaeology, earth sciences, climate studies, and sustainability studies will explore new ways of thinking about knowledge production in areas that cut across all these fields. Participants will focus on opportunities for collaboration in research that will contribute to enhanced understandings of past, present, and future aspects of survival and sustainability.
