Dear subscribers,
I’ve been building mailing lists for years, but I’ve never actually used them. I decided to change that. In addition to those who manually subscribed to my unused mailing lists, I have added a few people with whom I have had pleasant exchanges over the years and with whom I would like to stay in touch. So welcome to my first newsletter!
So far, this is simply a collection of links relating to my own work, to important pieces I have read by others, and opportunities I have been asked to share or which seem worth sharing. I will do my best to make sure that all external links are open access. It is culled in part from my social media postings (mostly twitter) but may well expand in the upcoming months and years. As many of you know, my interests are quite diverse, so some sections below may be more relevant to you than others.
If you have any news to share I’d be happy to include it in future newsletters. And if you know anyone who might be interested in receiving this newsletter, please forward it onwards–anyone can sign up using the link below. You can also unsubscribe at any time by clicking the link below. I hope to send these out a few times a year at most.
Happy reading and thanks for your interest!
Rebecca

Narmin Ismayilova (University of Birmingham) writes: “I am writing to you regarding the initiative launched by me and co-organiser, Gwendoline Maurer, from the UCL, Institute of Archaeology. We are a new inter-disciplinary initiative trying to bring together scholars and early career researchers of the Caucasus and adjacent regions, with the aim of putting this region into perspective, unite, transcend boundaries & enhance dialogue. We are hosting an initial networking event in the week commencing 8th February. We are encouraging scholars from archaeology, ancient history, anthropology, ethnography, art based fields to join the event. We want this network to be sustainable, and hold discussions, and monthly seminars alongside guest speakers.” You can find out more from their Twitter account @CaucasusNetwork.
