  • 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 alike. 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.
