Antiquities

Antiquities Fayum

The Interdisciplinary Research Group in Antiquities brings together faculty and graduate students from Anthropology, Art and Art History, Classics, English, History, Philosophy, and Religious Studies for high-level, interdisciplinary dialogue on “antiquity,” broadly defined to include the ancient Greek and Roman worlds and other cultures around the Mediterranean basin, as well as west and south Asia and prehistorical cultures of the Americas. The group meets around 3 times per semester to discuss a pre-circulated piece of work, such as an article in progress or a dissertation or book chapter, by one of the members. In addition, we plan to host one nationally renowned scholar per year.
