Global Antiquities represents a group of scholars dedicated to the study of antiquity regardless of regional specialization. The organization holds workshops, hosts invited speakers, and promotes the study of antiquity among Northwestern’s undergraduates. Last year’s activities included a panel on the study of law and the state in antiquity, an undergraduate tour of the Block Museum’s “Caravans of Gold” exhibit, and a talk by renowned Indologist Wendy Doniger on “Censorship and Self-Censorship in India.” This work was carried out with generous funding from the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, as well as that of several departments across campus. With their continued support we will be hosting another exciting round of activities this year.
