UPCOMING WEBINARS

Friends of ASOR present the next webinar in the 2023-2024 season on聽May 9th, 2024, at 3:00 pm EDT, presented by Dr. Allison Thomason. We are all sensing people, and the basic physical structure of our sensing organs has not changed for many thousands of years. But how did ancient humans perceive and experience sensory stimuli in their environment differently than we do today? In this lecture, Dr. Thomason, a specialist in ancient Mesopotamian material culture, explores how ancient Mesopotamian perceptions of sensory experiences can be compared to our own modern ones.

This webinar will be recorded and all paid registrants will be sent a link to view the recording.鈥嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧嬧

The Friends of ASOR Resource Page is an online resource for all things ancient Near Eastern. The FOA Resource Page brings together far-flung links to libraries, publications, museums, exhibitions, projects, and much more. This page will be a prime destination for scholars, students, and lay people who want a master portal into the world of the ancient Near East. The page is still under development, so take the opportunity to tell us what kind of online resources would be useful to you. In the meanwhile, please explore the videos compiled on the Multimedia Resources.
