Kaqchikel Maya Field School


Wuqu’ Kawoq is preparing in earnest for its two-week Kaqchikel language field school, Kab’lajuj ‘Ey, to be held from June 11-21 in Tecpan, Guatemala. This year’s co-directors, Meghan Farley-Webb and Anita Chary, have been working with instructor Magda Sotz Mux to prepare lessons suited for intermediate-advanced level students. The course will include several lessons in medical vocabulary, as several of this year’s students are involved with health service provision and research in medical anthropology. Kaqchikel medical resources developed during the course will be posted on Wuqu’ Kawoq’s website.
