The Ancient Worlds Network brings together staff and graduate students in LIAS-LUCSoR working on the ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern world. Our expertise covers a wide range of areas and disciplines, including the study of Ancient Arabia, Assyriology, Coptic Studies, Egyptology, Hebrew and Aramaic Studies, ancient Iranian Studies, Papyrology, linguistics, the study of religions, and the history of philosophy and science. The aim of the network is threefold. First, we want to stimulate scientific debate and synergy among faculty and graduate students engaged in the study of the ancient world at LIAS-LUCSoR. To this aim we regularly organize discussion sessions on "Current Debates" in our respective fields. Second, we aim to reflect on current and future challenges to our various academic fields and to propose strategies for improving our resilience and versatility. Third, we will contribute to improving facilities for graduate training in ancient world studies at LIAS-LUCSoR through a "Teaching Lab", designed and implemented to facilitate graduate teaching training.
