Golden Gate Bridge – San Francisco

I will be attending the ASOR annual meeting in San Francisco on November 16-19, 2011. This meeting gathers hundreds of Ancient Near Eastern scholars and archaeologists.

The ASOR (American Schools of Oriental Research) include several American research centers in the Middle East, notably the Albright Institute of Archaeological Research (AIAR), where I spent much time during my two years in Jerusalem.

More information (including the meeting’s program) on the ASOR website.

  1. Sound exciting! Does that mean that University of Strasburg has relations with ASOR or it’s your individual prerogative? Do any Russian scholars attend these annual mettings?

    1. I don’t think there are institutional relationships between the University of Strasbourg and ASOR. I have a few colleagues from the Archaeology department that conduct excavations in the Middle East, but I don’t know if they’ll be attending the meeting. One of my Old Testament colleagues, Regine Hunziker, will be attending: we’re working together on an archaeological project in Jordan (more on that later… if it works out!). I haven’t seen a lot of Russian colleagues, as there are few russian archaeological projects in these countries, but I’ll keep an eye and let you know! 😉

  2. Merci monsieur Michael de relayer cette information. J’ai pu découvrir le site de ASOR, son blogue et ses relais, dont l’un nous informe du film The Bible’s Buried Secrets.

    Le sigle du site ASOR me semble évoquer le symbole de Venus-Ishtar, chère au Proche-Orient, l’étoile à huit branches ou même la croix ansée ! Bon colloque et de nouveau un grand merci !
