Meetings of The Pre-Columbian Society

Meetings are held on the second Saturday of the month during the academic year (October to June). Meetings usually begin at 1:30 pm and are followed by refreshments and informal discussion. The Glyph Group usually meets at 10 am throughout the year. We schedule occasional offsite trips, including museums or exhibitions, which may take place outside of our regular meeting dates or times.

Meetings are usually held at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Directions

The next meeting will be held on Saturday February 16 at Penn Museum room 345 at 10 am. Note that this is the 3rd, not the 2nd Saturday, and that the talk is at 10 am. Dr. Élodie Dupey García, Instituto de Investigaciones Históricas, UNAM and Dr. Gabrielle Vail, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill will speak on "Cultural Interactions in Late Postclassic Mesoamerica: Exploring Cognate Almanacs in the Borgia Group and Maya Codices." Further information can be found at Next Meeting.
