The Center for the
Ancient Mediterranean at Columbia University seeks to link
together all the faculty, students and numerous departments
that have an interest in the cultures of the ancient Mediterranean
and adjoining areas. It holds regular conferences and other scholarly encounters.
The Department of Anthropology hosts a range of talks of broad archaeological and anthropological interest, including the Museum Anthropology Lectures, the Scheps lecture series, and the Boas seminars.
The Columbia Early China Seminar is an inter-university forum for the study of China from the beginning of the Neolithic to the end of the Han dynasty (A.D. 220). All interested Columbia instructors and graduate students are welcome to attend the meetings.

Seminar in the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas (web page)
Every year the University Seminar in the Arts of Africa, Oceania
and the Americas conducts six meetings on various subjects of
interest within the scholarly and professional community of
the New York area. For the Spring 2000 semester, we had two
distinguished Africanists and a Pre-Columbian scholar give talks
on areas of their specialty to audiences of students and professionals
This seminar was created to coordinate the
archaeological chronologies of the regions of the Middle East and the
Eastern Mediterranean. The seminar meets from four to six times a year
and the most relevant papers were published in the American Journal of
Archaeology until 1988. Since then such papers have been published in
the Journal of the Ancient Near East Society. Recently, the focus of
the seminar has been widened to include all aspects of the ancient
cultures of the Near East and its adjoining regions.
