Activities and Facilities
An active program of scholarly and public lectures is in place, and the Joukowsky Institute periodically serves as host to visiting fellows who interact with all interested members of the Brown community.
The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World is presently located in Rhode Island Hall. The Joukowsky Institute contains faculty and administrative offices, a lecture hall, a seminar room, and a non-circulating library of relevant books and journals. A small study collection of artifacts (including pottery, metalwork, and figurines) and a substantial numismatic collection are also housed in secure storage here; these are available for student teaching and research. Graduates in the Joukowsky Institute are provided with study space, as well computing and scanning facilities. A fieldwork laboratory has computer facilities and space for analysis and study. Finally, a comfortable common room is available for use by the entire Institute community.
