Reconstructing Ancient Syria

Reconstructing Ancient Syria

The UH Hewlett Packard Enterprise Data Science Institute presents: Reconstructing Ancient Syria

Register

Join our Zoom call on April 9 from 11 am to 12 noon Central Daylight Time (North America).

In the ancient past, the war-torn Syria in today’s news was defined by the multiculturalism of its diverse inhabitants. Uncovering how the identities and connections of Syrian communities evolved over time has been an onerous task. In addition to significant gaps within the textual record and limited archaeological investigation, ongoing political violence and destruction of antiquities have increasingly threatened to erase the vibrant mosaic of this historic region.

This talk explores how the intersection of coins and digital methodologies can help reconstruct identity and evolving patterns of political exchange within ancient Syria. The speakers hope to educate a wide audience both about the tremendous importance of coins and the vital contemporary issue of Syrian identity and heritage.

Kristina Neumann, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of Roman and digital history at the University of Houston, focusing on the evolution of local and regional identities and communities of the Middle East under the Roman empire.
