This lectureship was established in 1999 by Nadzia Borowski because of her enthusiasm for the ancient Maya. Ms. Borowski calls herself a "Sunday Archaeologist" and gives talks entitled "Tales of the Ancient Maya." She lives in Bethlehem, Connecticut. The Lectureship is also supported by Hedwig Stewart of Naples, Florida. The Borowski fund currently supports one lecture annually on a Mayan topic for any society in New England and one other.
The Borowski Lecturers are chosen by the Lecture Program Committee of the AIA.
