Expanding the Ancient World Workshop

Globalization in the Ancient World

Organized by the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World

This workshop will take place online. Registration is required; click through for the registration link. Zoom information will be provided via confirmation email to registered participants. Expanding the Ancient World is a series of professional development workshops and online resources for teachers. We tend to think of globalization as a modern phenomenon, where far-flung places impact one other through exchange of ideas, resources, commodities, technologies, and human mobility. How can we engage with the evidence regarding the early history of interconnectedness in the world?

Ancient Environmental History: How Do You Build a Roman City in the Middle of Egypt’s Western Desert?

Organized by the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World

This workshop will take place in person at ISAW. Registration is required; click through for the registration link. Expanding the Ancient World is a series of professional development workshops and online resources for teachers. Ancient Trimithis was one of many medium-sized cities in the Roman Empire; but unlike most, it was located right in the middle of Egypt’s inhospitable Western Desert, hundreds of kilometers from the Nile Valley, one of the driest places on earth. In this workshop we will explore how people adapted to and thrived in this harsh and changing environment by studying the results from NYU’s Amheida Excavations in Egypt’s Dakhla Oasis.
