Methodologies in Egyptology and Mesopotamian Studies (MEMS) has two main goals: (1) to promote dialogue among scholars from diverse fields related to the study of ancient history, including primarily the fields of Egyptology and Assyriology, and (2) to discuss the application of various methodologies, such as anthropology, archaeology and archaeometry, conservation, digital humanities as well as various other mathematical and scientific approaches. While the workshop is coordinated by Assyriologists and Egyptologists, we are eager to include any who have an interest in the various methodologies employed in the study of ancient history.

Meetings begin at 6pm in HSM 201 with drinks and refreshments, and include ample time for questions and discussion after the presentation.
