About the Directors
Doctors Patricia Urban and Edward Schortman created the Kenyon-Honduras Program and continue to serve as its directors. We both received our PhDs in anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania and are Latin American specialists who have led archaeological projects in Honduras and Guatemala since 1977. Since 1991 we have also overseen the conduct of ethnographic research. Our most recent work has been at El Coyote, and before that in the Naco valley, and it was during the course of these field seasons that the program described here was developed. We have had the great pleasure of working with over 130 undergraduates in the field since 1983. Both of us have taught courses dealing with anthropology, archaeology, and Latin American politics and history at Kenyon College and in the field since 1981.
We are fully committed to providing high quality learning environments for undergraduates and have crafted the unique educational experience described here with this goal in mind. The Kenyon-Honduras Program is a tremendously satisfying and exciting teaching experience and we hope that you will be able to join us.
