The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World, at Brown University, is dedicated to the academic study and public promotion of the archaeology and art of the ancient Mediterranean, Egypt, and Western Asia (the latter broadly construed as extending from Anatolia and the Levant to the Caucasus, and including the territories of the ancient Near East); our principal research interests lie in the complex societies of the pre-modern era.
Although the core efforts of the Joukowsky Institute are archaeological in nature and are located within this broadly defined zone, close ties with all individuals interested in the ancient world, and with archaeologists of all parts of the globe, are welcome and actively encouraged.
Established in 2004, the Joukowsky Institute incorporates and amplifies the activities of Brown’s former Center for Old World Archaeology and Art. A new director, Susan E. Alcock, took up her appointment in 2006, and the Institute is presently in a period of rapid curricular innovation and faculty expansion.
The goal of the Institute is to foster an interdisciplinary community of interest in the archaeology of the ancient world, and in the discipline of archaeology more generally. Its mandate is to promote research, fieldwork, teaching, and public outreach, with the Institute’s associated faculty, students, and facilities serving as a hub for this activity.
