The wooden lintels from Tikal are amongst the most significant works of art created by the pre-Hispanic Maya people. We discuss the newest research findings concerning the hieroglyph texts and accompanying imagery and present a new digital documentation project designed to analyse the classical Mayan texts with the aim of compiling a digital dictionary.

With Christian Prager, Sven Gronemeyer and Elisabeth Wagner, research project “Text Data Base and Dictionary of Classical Maya”, University of Bonn. Panellist: Alexander Brust

GRASPING ANTHROPOLOGY

Every first Wednesday of the month, in the evening, we organize an interactive event called “Grasping Anthropology”. The idea is to present an anthropological topic of interest, discuss current societal issues and tell stories from a fresh or at least different perspective, offering new and often surprising ways of looking at our everyday life.

The speed of political and socio-cultural change has stepped up a gear over the last few years – whether this is actually the case or only felt so is anyone’s guess. The term “unbelievable” is on everyone’s lips, signalling individual as well as collective astonishment, maybe even the feeling of losing control. Triggering mixed feelings, even anxiety, lies in the nature of change. The event “Grasping Anthropology” is a special form of mediation and outreach. In guided tours, gallery talks, discussions, workshops, concerts, readings, etc. we shed light on a wide range of culturally and socially relevant topics – in context and in a coherent and comprehensible way. Engagement with the audience and lively discussions on current issues, exhibitions, exhibited objects or the museum as such is what our curators and guest speakers expect, or at least hope for. In this way both sides profit from the exchange, making things which at first appear unbelievable, easier to grasp.
