I read “Living Maya
” [News, May 2] by Rob D'Amico with great interest.
I work at the University of Texas Press (www.utexaspress.com
). We are a nonprofit book publisher based at the University of Texas at Austin. Founded more than 50 years ago, we've published quite a few books on the Maya (www.utexas.edu/utpress/subjects/maya.html
) and other areas of Latin American studies.
In fact, the press has a book series entitled the Linda Schele Series in Maya and Pre-Columbian Studies. This series publishes titles on the the Maya and pre-Columbian subjects and was created in honor of Linda Schele and the pioneering contributions she made to the field of Maya studies.
Thank you for bringing attention to an area of the university and a field of study that rarely receive attention in most media.
