Fall 2020 Schedule

Welcome back to a new academic year! I am your new student coordinator, Eduardo García-Molina, and it is my pleasure to present the current fall schedule for the Ancient Societies Workshop. Some important things to note given the current circumstances:

Ancient Societies will be completely online during fall for the safety of our participants.

Our current time-slot is 4:20pm CT. We will be sending an email with a poll to gauge if this is a workable time for our participants.

You can find more information about our theme for this year, “Disaster in the Ancient World,” by going to the “About” section.

Zoom information for each meeting will be sent out to the list-serve. It will also be posted on this site two hours in advance to avoid “Zoom-bombing.” If you want to be included in the list-serve, we have added a “subscribe” tab with a link that will take you directly to sign up.
