Yale Workshop in Ancient Societies

This interdisciplinary workshop serves as a meeting ground for those who work on the ancient world at Yale, and is an important forum that allows sustained conversation about a common theme. The workshop meets once a month during the academic year, and is supplemented by the core graduate seminar in the Yale Initiative for the Study of Antiquity and the Premodern World.

Presenters include Yale faculty and graduate students, as well as occasional visiting professors. The chronological scope of the seminar extends over the first millennium BCE and up through the premodern period; issues of reception are also considered. The theme for 2015-16 is "Frontier and Province in the Premodern World". For a description of the associated graduate seminar go here.

Schedule 2015–16. All meetings start at noon. A light lunch is served.
