  • “Texts and Archaeology”

    The 2012-2014 theme of the Ancient Societies Workshop is "Texts and Archaeology," considering the relationship between documentary texts and archaeological work in the practice of ancient history. We hope to explore the connections and tensions between texts and material as sources of evidence, to study ancient documents in their contexts of use and production, and to evaluate the history of their use, re-use, reception, and disposal. This workshop aims to promote conversation among philologists, historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, and art historians regarding historical and comparative contextualization in the evaluation of these materials.

    Our interdisciplinary workshop always welcomes the participation of anyone studying the history of the ancient world. Please contact Kate (klagnew [at] with any questions, and please join our mailing list for additional announcements.
