The colloquium will provide an overview of contemporary developments in the study and conservation of these monumental sites in southern Mexico. Archaeologists from the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico, who are responsible of sites, projects, and archaeological sites in Oaxaca and Yucatán will present the findings on architecture and urbanism on important pre-Columbian sites. The visiting archeologist to UT Austin will share their academic progress on the more recent projects and will reflect on the major challenges to perform actions for conservation for three World Heritage sites such as Monte Albán, Mitla-Yagul, Ruta Puuc and Uxmal. The presentations will also include other sites that have been recently explored such as Atzompa and Yucundaa in the region of Oaxaca.
