Resulting from the symposium "Public Representations in the Maya Area" held at the 52nd Congress of Americanists in Seville, this volume contains ten chapters by Mesoamerican specialists studying Precolumbian plazas from new points of view. The focus of the symposium was the role of the plaza among the prehispanic Maya. The chapters discuss the origins of the plaza, the ideologies and socioeconomic forces that produced it (including the roles played by those who planned and built plazas), and the social functions and affective meaning of plazas. All chapters but one in Spanish.
