Advances in Phoenician-Punic Studies Workshop

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.
