Scroll and Book Workshop: Inaugural Meeting

7:30pm to 8:30pm


Harvard Museum of the Ancient Near East, Room 201

The workshop is based in Harvard NELC, but is open to all interested students from across campus. Under the subheading “Scribes, Texts, and Libraries in the Ancient World” it brings together students (and faculty) working on ancient book culture in the ancient Mediterranean, Asia, and North Africa until ca. year 1000 C.E. As a GSAS workshop, we will primarily be a student-facing forum in which participants present their work and discuss it with each other.
