Uk'u'x Kaj, Uk'u'x Ulew: Antología de Poesía Maya Guatemalteca Contemporánea
Pittsburgh: Instituto Internacional de Literatura Iberoamericana, 2010

A Maya of K’iche’ origin, Emilio del Valle Escalante is associate professor in the UNC-Chapel Hill Department of Romance Studies and specializes in contemporary Latin American literature, with an emphasis on indigenous literatures in Southern Mexico and Central America. He is one of three Mayanists on faculty at Chapel Hill: Patricia McAnany, Kenan Eminent Professor in the Department of Anthropology, is an archaeologist who has directed field research cultural heritage programs throughout the Maya region; David Mora Marín, a scholar of Mayan historical linguistics and epigraphy, is associate professor in the Department of Linguistics.

In this anthology, del Valle Escalante brings together the verse of fifteen Guatemalan poets from six linguistic communities: Kaqchikel, K’iche’, Pop'ti, Q’eq’chi, Q’anjob’al, and Tz’utujil.
