In collaboration with the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut (DAI), the American Research Institute Turkey (ARIT), and ICOMOS Turkey, and with gracious support from the Ayvalık Belediyesi and Sanat Fabrikası, KUDAR is organizing an international workshop to evaluate different ways of understanding the joint heritage throughout the maritime micro-region bounded by the island of Lesbos and the UNESCO World Heritage site of Pergamon / Bergama. From our perspective, this is an ideal environment for an extensive and diachronic study. The archaeological, textual, architectural, and historical records are extensive spatially and chronologically, while the present communities are emblematic of innumerable entanglements in the past and present.

To be held in the historic town of Ayvalık, Turkey, in the center of this micro-region, this multi-disciplinary event is an opportunity to explore how this region’s rich history is a narrative of ongoing entanglement, communications, migration, and interaction. Presentations from a group of international scholars will take place in the Sanat Fabrikası Tiyatrosu on November 10th and 11th.

This event is open to the public – if you would like to attend, please contact Matthew Harpster at:
