Alumni kudos

Kudos to…  Helen Dixon (MSP 07) who received funding for placement at the University of Sofia, Bulgaria’s summer school for Digital Tools in the Humanities, organized by their Center of Excellence in the Humanities.  She was also named a member of the American Schools of Oriental Research’s annual meeting program committee.  In addition, she is working as an assistant editor to the journal Palestine Exploration Quarterly, due to her past experience on the U-M Working Papers in Museum Studies series.  Finally, Helen is planning a conference in Beirut on “Religion and Empire in the First Millennium BCE Levant” for the University of Helsinki Centre of Excellence in “Changes in Sacred Texts and Traditions,” and in conjunction with the Finnish Institute in the Middle East.
