The AIA/APA joint annual meeting is “the largest and oldest established meeting of classical scholars and archaeologists in North America.” From January 6-9, scholars will present research from around the world in posters and lectures.

This year, the Archaeological Institute of America selected two USC undergraduates to present their research at the conference! This is a tremendous opportunity for both of us, as well as being utterly terrifying. In order to reduce the blind panic, we request that you come see us present–we need the support!

Jenny Crawford will be presenting at Poster Session 2G from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Thursday, January 7 in Marquis Ballroom South. Her presentation, “Deconstructing and Recreating a Rare Ancient Egyptian Gilding Technique,” represents years of research on the gilding of a shabti figurine housed at USC.

Sarah Hawley will be presenting during Session 2F on Thursday, January 7, 12:30 PM – 2:30 PM in Platinum Ballroom 5. Her paper, “The Iconography of Empire: Figurines from Tell al-Judaidah,” discusses figurine design and production during the Persian and Hellenistic time periods at an important site in southeastern Turkey.

The sessions intersect, but Sarah will only be talking for 10 minutes, so you can pop in for that and then pop back out to see Jenny!

Please come support us as we represent USC archaeology!

Jenny and Sarah, not yet in a state of blind panic.
