Collaborative Project for High School Students in NC and Yucatan, Mexico

The Anthropology department and the Wilson Library at UNC Chapel Hill are working together to plan an international collaboration between high school students in North Carolina and Yucatan, Mexico. They are recruiting students and teachers who are interested in this innovative project that will focus on archival documentation of identity and migration.


North Carolina students will work closely with counterparts in the Yucatán to identify and interpret historical documents. The fundamental question that participants will address is: What does it mean to be Maya and to have a history? Their responses and archival discoveries will be shared through social media and webcast workshops, and documented in a traveling exhibit that will be featured in central North Carolina and in towns in the Yucatán. The exhibit will be produced by the students, and engage them in the application of archival skills and the production of cross-cultural knowledge. As a capstone, students will travel to the other country in a weeklong exchange (two weeks total) and share their experiences during the exhibit presentation."


If interested, please contact Claire Novotny: cnovotny@live.unc.edu, or 919-923-8677
