(updated 22 November 2023)
We regret to inform you that the lecture scheduled for November 27 is postponed. Thank you for your interest. We look forward to gathering together again in the near future.
The first open-to-the-public presentation of our 2023 fall lecture series will be held Wednesday, September 20, 2023, at 5 p.m. (Amman time). Join us in person or via Zoom for “Game Boards from Petra,” by Dr. Bilal R. Khrisat, commissioner of the Petra Archaeological Park and Tourism at the Petra Development Tourism Authority (PDTRA). He will explore the significance of Nabataean board games found carved into rock surfaces in Petra.
For details, including how to join us remotely, visit our public lectures and other events page.
And to kick off the series, we offer a video of a recent talk by Prof. Salwa Al-Noori of the University of Washington: “Reviving Polymathy in Contemporary Education: Integration of Interdisciplinary and Cultural Contexts to Enhance Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Curricula.” This is available for viewing on our YouTube channel.
