Workshop Presented by ISAW & The American Turkish Society
With The American Turkish Society, ISAW will be presenting a lecture and workshop on April 10-11, organized by Lorenzo d’Alfonso and Karen Rubinson. The workshop, taking place on April 11th, will explore the concept of borders within the landscape of pre-classical Anatolia and the South Caucasus, areas with highly varied physical geographies and both past and recent political borders that have biased interpretation of archaeological information. Recent text-based studies on the historical geography of the region encourage the reconsideration of the correspondence between the written and archaeological records. Data from this area has been studied by a variety of scholars, some of whom look at it from “outside” and some from “inside,” to different effects. This workshop will bring some of these perspectives together.
The program will be posted shortly.
Seating is limited, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
The workshop will be preceded by a lecture on Thursday, April 10th at 6:00pm with Drs. Mehmet Isikli and Marcella Frangipane presenting on their excavations at Arslantepe/Malatya and Ayanis.
