Aims & Purpose
The journal does not intend to study and analyze the Maya in the ways of the past. Maya America highlights the intersection of indigenous, intercultural, and transnational realities of the changing United States and the regional Americas. Although the journal takes its name and remains centrally focused on the people of Maya heritage, we look for essays and commentary that give insight into the global world of the 21st century.
The journal encourages discussions between Maya and non-Maya and discussions on research and collaboration that challenge methodologies. Maya America intends to be interdisciplinary, and we welcome essays that discuss the role of the university and explore the challenges of young faculty and graduate students when coming from disciplines not accustomed to engagement academics.
