Two Leaders in Roman Archaeology Join Forces

The Journal of Roman Archaeology and the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University are pleased to announce a new partnership, which will consolidate and build on our respective strengths: as a primary forum for research and debate in Roman Archaeology, and as a leading center for training and research in Mediterranean Archaeology.

The Joukowsky Institute will become the primary base of operations for the newly created position of Assistant Editor of the Journal of Roman Archaeology, beginning in July 2017. The Assistant Editor will also be appointed as a visiting faculty member of the Institute, teaching both graduate and undergraduate classes, and thereby further strengthening Brown’s expertise in the field of Roman Archaeology. (See the position announcement online at https://apply.interfolio.com/41106.) John Humphrey will continue as the journal’s Editor-in-Chief for the immediate future, which includes the publication of volume 31 (2018).

The goal of this collaboration is to ensure the journal’s longevity and success by providing a robust and supportive academic basis for the prominent role that JRA already plays in Roman Archaeology, which is an equally fundamental aspect of the Joukowsky Institute’s mission.

The Journal of Roman Archaeology is concerned with Italy and all parts of the Roman world from about 700 B.C. to about A.D. 700 This embraces Etruscan, Italic, Late Iron Age, Punic and Phoenician, Hellenistic, Roman, Late Antique, Early Byzantine, and Early Mediaeval, amongst others. It is Mediterranean-wide in its coverage and does not give priority to any particular geographical regions within the Roman world broadly defined. All aspects of archaeology, by the broadest interpretation of that word, will be relevant for inclusion, including historical material which has an archaeological component or which is likely to be relevant for archaeologists. Contributions are printed in any of the following languages: English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.

The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World is dedicated to the academic study and public promotion of the archaeology and art of the ancient Mediterranean, Egypt, and the Near East; our principal research interests lie in the complex societies of the pre-modern era. Joukowsky Institute faculty and students are from a wide range of countries and backgrounds — and Brown University’s fieldwork and research in archaeology and the ancient world reflects and builds on that multiplicity of perspectives. The goal of the Institute is to foster an interdisciplinary community of interest in the archaeology of the ancient world, and in the discipline of archaeology more generally. Its mandate is to promote research, fieldwork, teaching, and public outreach, with the Institute’s associated faculty, students, and facilities serving as a hub for this activity.
