This network will run from 2023 to 2025.
Anatolia was a crossroads of civilisations in the past and is a crossroads of disciplines today. Despite the incredible advances of recent years, the study of this field is still somewhat hindered by institutional boundaries. There are comparatively few institutions in which research and training on these areas is carried out, and anyone interested in the in the many aspects of Ancient Anatolia (linguistics, archaeology, history, epigraphy, literature) have no common venue and few occasions to come together, exchange ideas and build partnerships.
The goal of this network is to bring scholars, students, and members of the public together and build a local and international community which will support a rather endangered discipline. The network will provide a venue for researchers and students and promote new academic initiatives in the field (from reading groups to conferences). It will give anyone interested in the study of Ancient Anatolia the chance to meet, listen to each other, exchange ideas, and potentially join forces in shared projects.
If you would like to join the network, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to our mailing list.
