Palatial Politics: The Classic Maya Royal Court at La Corona, Guatemala

Maxime Lamoureux-St-Hilaire, Tulane University, Junior Fellow 2017–2018

My doctoral research consisted of four seasons of archaeological fieldwork and five seasons in the laboratory. This research program resulted in multiple complementary data sets that required time and effort to be compiled comprehensively. I arrived at Dumbarton Oaks with these data in hand, ready to be arranged and written into my dissertation. Thanks to the wonderful support of the research library and staff, and that of the Pre-Columbian Studies Department, I accomplished my objective. I wrote nine chapters and worked on over 250 figures. I submitted a first draft of my dissertation in early February 2018, and the final draft by the end of term.
