The CMHI Today

 

The esteemed Corpus Program continues to engage in field research and documentation of new sites for publication. Barbara Fash, appointed director in 2005 in an open search following Ian Graham's announcement of retirement in 2004 and subsequent donation of the archive to the Peabody Museum, has set new CMHI initiatives to reach a broader audience, keep pace with the discovery of new monuments and the growing number of specialists in the field (especially in the countries of origin), enhance accuracy and drawing reliability, and anticipate future uses of Corpus data. These include:

  • This Corpus web page, providing a reliable resource for students and scholars to access the monuments and site maps directly , adding updated text translations and research tools
  • Intitiating 3-D technologies for recording and preserving monuments in electronic formats (See Yaxchilan -Scanning History)
  • Ongoing digitization of the priceless photographic archive for its long-term preservation.
  • Update site listings and the overall Mesoamerican map
  • Institute epigraphic cross checking of drawings (i.e. Chicago Epigraphic Survey model)
  • Assisting with monument conservation in countries of origin
