Graduate Symposium 2020 in Jerusalem


Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Graduate Student Symposium was not able to take place as planned in Jerusalem March 31–April 1, 2020. Our Student Representative is working hard to reorganise the meeting at a later date. Please check back soon for further information.


The EABS is pleased to announce that the twelfth annual graduate symposium will take place at the W.F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research in Jerusalem, Israel on March 31–April 1, 2020 and will be followed by a two-day post conference tour April 2–3, 2020 which includes guided tours of Jerusalem and the Dead Sea area (including Qumran, Ein Gedi, and Masada). All graduate students, PhD candidates, and postdoctoral researchers are invited to present on topics in their area of research including: Hebrew Bible, the ancient Near East, Biblical Archaeology, New Testament, Early Christianity, Rabbinics, Patristics, and any other relevant cognate areas. Participants may format their presentations according to their preference: paper, seminar discussion, poster, or another form.
