Saturday, April 25th, 2015, 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM *RSVP Required*
The goal of this workshop is to hear from scholars based in New England specializing in diverse aspects of the Phoenician and Punic experience, spanning broad temporal, geographical, and thematic boundaries. The last fifteen years has been witness to a fluorescence in theoretical and methodological approaches to the subject, including research into religion, colonial practices, rural and agricultural landscapes, text and epigraphy, industry and technology, kinship, trade, and political economy and state formation. By bringing together researchers who focus on these cultural behaviors, we plan to discuss recent advances in order to understand the potential that the next fifteen years of research may offer.
*Those interested in attending the workshop MUST contact Peter van Dommelen and Brett Kaufman prior to April 10th.
The Archaeology & the Ancient World DUG will be hosting a social at 3:30 pm in Rhode Island Hall. All Archaeology concentrators, as well as all those interested in archaeology and the ancient world, are welcome to attend. It's a wonderful chance to engage with others who share a love of archaeology! Refreshments will be served!
