Madaba Plains Project 50th Anniversary ASOR Session

 

Madaba Plains Project at 50: Contextualizing MPP at Tall Hisban, Tall al- ‘Umayri and Tall Jalul

Session Chairs: Douglas Clark, La Sierra University; Larry Herr, Burman University; Oystein LaBianca, Andrews University; Lawrence Geraty, La Sierra University; Randall Younker, Andrews University

Description: These sessions mark 50 years of research in Jordan by the Madaba Plains Project or MPP. Our aim with each session is to share certain back-stories about the people and the thinking that helped sustain and shape five decades of research by our team in the Madaba Plains region of Jordan. The goal is thus to recall, evaluate and reflect on the intentions, hopes, rewards and disappointments of various stakeholders in the work of MPP, including our lay and academic constituencies, financial sponsors, organizers, invited specialists, local and foreign participants.

Please note that registration is required to attend the ASOR academic sessions. To attend the full ASOR meeting, please register online. One-day registration (rates vary) will be available on site.

The ASOR MPP reception does NOT require ASOR registration. A separate, free registration is required.
