The main purpose of the workshop is to offer a forum for graduate students to present their work and receive constructive feedback on their research on ancient Central and Western Asia and Egypt. Students are therefore particularly encouraged to attend, and their professors are encouraged to let them know about this workshop. About half of the meetings will be dedicated to student presentations. We also arrange lectures by scholars whose work in recent years has been formative in their field. Finally, the workshop promotes the intellectual and social cohesion of the diverse community of students and scholars (archaeologists, epigraphers, historians, art historians, curators, etc) divided across many departments, divisions, and schools in the region.
Workshops begin at 5:15pm on the date indicated, Harvard Semitic Museum #201.
