“Conservation and Site Preservation in the Near East”

American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR) Annual Meeting

San Diego, CA, Westin Hotel, November 19-22, 2014

This session will be co-chaired by Suzanne Davis davissl@umich.edu and LeeAnn Barnes Gordon leeannbarnes@gmail.com.  Please feel free to contact them to discuss possible paper proposals or to request further details regarding the session. 

The goal of the session is to create a forum where archaeologists and conservators can share research, exchange ideas, and discuss issues impacting the conservation of Near Eastern artifacts and sites. Contributors’ presentations will examine regional and national trends in preservation as well as site-specific programs. Presenters will also consider how political instability and the need for economic development are impacting the preservation of archaeological heritage in the Near East. Generous discussion time will engage the contributors and the audience, creating a dialogue that will ultimately improve conservation of artifacts and sites in the Near East. 

This session will be the third of four in a series on conservation at the ASOR annual meeting.
