Kristian Lorenzo, Monmouth College’s new ACM-Mellon Fellow in classical archaeology and director of the college’s Archaeology Research Laboratory, will be featured at the next archaeology lecture series program on Oct. 23 at 7:30 p.m. in the Morgan Room in Poling Hall.
The program will be based on a paper titled “East Defeats West: Naval War and Cross Cultural Adaptation in Classical Cyprus,” which Lorenzo will present in November at the 12th annual Postgraduate Cypriot Archaeology (POCA) symposium.
Free and open to the public, the talk is sponsored by the MC Classics Department, in cooperation with the Western Illinois Society of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA)
The POCA symposium will be held at the University of Erlangen in Germany. The meeting offers an excellent opportunity for postgraduate students and young scholars, from various backgrounds and disciplines, who are currently carrying out research on Cypriote culture, to present their work, exchange ideas and meet people who conduct research in the same field.
