Ancient Near Eastern Languages in Contact –eLecture Series

Ancient Near Eastern Languages in Contact eLecture Series
We are pleased to announce that University College London and King’s College London are co-hosting an eLecture series, entitled Ancient Near Eastern Languages in Contact(ANELC). With this initiative we aim to bring together scholars from around the world with an interest in Ancient Near Eastern languages, and we hope it stimulates an exchange of ideas and collaboration in a time of academic isolation. The eLectures take place each Wednesday from 1 July until 26 August 2020 from 16:00 until 17:00 BST (London). We are delighted to invite you to this free online event and we look forward to seeing you in one of the meetings!
