On Friday I presented some of my research for colleagues at North Dakota State University in Fargo. The conversation after my paper was most helpful and will form a key role in my revisions.
But for now, I need to focus on my next paper at McGill Unversity in a scant three weeks! It will focus on our work with the Pyla-Koutsopetria Archaeological Project and continue our efforts to place our fieldwork in the larger context of the Roman Mediterranean.
Here's the notice:
Roman Cyprus: Space and Power in an Island Province
The McGill University Department of History and Classical Studies and the Pyla Koustopetria Archaeological Project (PKAP) will host a one-day colloquium on "Roman Cyprus: Space and Power in an Island Province." The colloquium will feature a key note lecture by Prof. Andreas Mehl (Martin-Luther-Universität, Halle-Wittenberg) and a formal response by Prof. William Caraher (University of North Dakota), co-director of the PKAP. The presentations will be followed by a roundtable discussion. The colloquium will be held on Wednesday, December 10, 2:30-5:30 PM, at McGill University in Thomson House, 3650 McTavish.
