New Student Poster Prize at BANEA Conference 2020





We are pleased to announced, in collaboration with our sister institutes, the British Institute for the Study of Iraq (BISI), the British Institute at Ankara (BIAA) as well as Oxbow Books, a Student Poster Competition at the next British Association of Near Eastern Archaeology (BANEA) conference. 

Taking place on 9th – 11th January 2020 at the University of Oxford's Ashmolean Museum and nearby college venues, the theme of the conference will be ‘Critical Debates in the Archaeology of the Middle East’. 

The Student Poster Competition is open to undergraduate and postgraduate students who are UK/EEA nationals or studying at UK universities engaged in the study of the lands and peoples of the Levant, Iraq, Turkey and the wider Near East.

Posters will be displayed at the upcoming BANEA Conference, offering students the opportunity to present and discuss the innovative and creative research that they are undertaking with both the academic community and the wider public and providing them with an opportunity to raise the profile of their research. We welcome applications on any topic in the archaeology of the Middle East and related themes in history, languages, and heritage.
