Unieke kans om van ideeën te wisselen met professor Rosemary Joyce

25 januari 2022

On the Leiden University Dies, an honorary doctorate will be conferred to Prof. dr. Rosemary Joyce (UC Berkeley). The following day the Faculty of Archaeology and Department of Anthropology will co-host an interactive interview with Prof. Joyce, emphasizing her research and teaching career and inviting questions from the student audience. 

We would like to invite students to submit questions that relate to their own research and/or Prof. Joyce’s research career and ask them at the event itself. This is a unique opportunity to exchange ideas with a world-leading archaeologist and to do so on an interdisciplinary forum! 

Submit your questions

Please submit questions by Tuesday, 1 February to a.geurds@arch.leidenuniv.nl and m.j.spierenburg@fsw.leidenuniv.nl
