Faculty Lecture to Debate Maya Prediction of Apocalypse, Nov. 1


Barbara Brodman, Ph.D.



Did the Maya really predict that the world would end—or is the apocalyptic prediction of Western origin?

That’s up for discussion at the next Faculty Lecture Series, inspired by the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences’ annual academic theme of “Life and Death.”

Faculty Lecture Series
“2012 and the End of the World”
Barbara Brodman, Ph.D., professor at the college
Thursday, Nov. 1
Noon–1:00 p.m.
Alvin Sherman Library | Second Floor Gallery

This talk will examine evidence in the writings and images of the ancient Maya to determine whether or not they predicted the death of the world or its continued life.

The Faculty Lecture Series draws from the knowledge and expertise of more than 120 full-time faculty members within the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences. The series explores the faculty’s diverse areas of interest in the arts, humanities, social sciences, physical sciences, and biological sciences. These talks are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Jim Doan, Ph.D., professor at the college, at (954) 262-8207.
