2022 Field Research in Latin America

We expect to award up to three summer grants for $1,500 each to advance research for either master’s or doctoral candidates. We are especially interested in projects that link Latinx Studies or Latin American Studies with other disciplines.

CLLAS Seed Grant Project to Grow at Library of Congress

Stephanie Wood Named 2022-2023 Jay I. Kislak Chair at the Library of Congress

 Stephanie Wood will be the 2022-2023 Jay I. Kislak Chair at the Library of Congress, a position dedicated to the Study of History and Cultures of the Early Americas. As Chair, Wood will advance the Visual Lexicon of Aztec Hieroglyphs, a project that began as a CLLAS funded research project.

“The online searchable database currently has about 1800 hieroglyphs from the Codex Mendoza (c. 1541),” says Wood.  “The goal in the next academic year is to double the dataset in collaboration with colleagues from Mexico, Spain, and the U.S. and to enhance and host a decipherment tool to assist scholars who are striving to analyze glyphs on additional codices. We are also beginning to add examples of iconography that could be helpful in achieving a deeper understanding of the intended meaning of hieroglyphs. Another long-range goal is to create materials for teaching hieroglyphs to students anywhere, but especially those who have Mexican origins and might be interested in learning more about their rich heritage.”

The Jay I. Kislak Chair was created four years ago for senior scholars, and it represents a career capstone. One cannot apply for this position, it is bestowed, with candidates being nominated and then chosen by a selection committee.   Recipients are allowed to work on a research project of their choice for nine months with generous support.  The endowment also funds an international symposium that will host guests who share the research interest of the Chair.
