"Conservation and Site Preservation in the Near East"
American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR) Annual Meeting
Westin Hotel
San Diego, CA
November 19-22, 2014

This session will be co-chaired by Suzanne Davis <davissl<-a t->umich< . >edu>
and LeeAnn Barnes Gordon <leeannbarnes<-a t->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. To read AIC blog posts about previous
sessions, see:
