Structural and forensic engineer Jim O’Kon will hold a lecture on Maya culture at the Corn, Cotton, Chocolate event on Nov. 15 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Room K-422 at Kendall Campus, 11011 S.W. 104 St.
“This is open to anyone who is interested in Maya culture. Usually, students who major in anthropology, history [and] sociology would benefit from this lecture.” said the chair of social sciences, Lourdes Rassi.
O’Kon has professionally studied the ancient Maya and released a book called The Lost Secrets of Maya Technology.
The Kendall Campus bookstore will be presenting copies of the speaker’s book during the event. Students who attend the series can apply for a travel scholarship to Maya sites with experts in Maya history and culture.
The event is free and open to the public.
