The First Jewish Revolt: Archaeology, History, and Ideology

By Andrea M. Berlin; J. Andrew Overman | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This book includes all of the papers presented at a conference organized jointly by Andrea Berlin, of the Department of Classical and Near Eastern Studies at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, and Andrew Overman, of the Department of Classics at Macalester College, St. Paul. The conference took place April 21-23, 1999, with sessions held at both institutions. Anthony Saldarini could not attend, though he had already written his paper for consideration by the other participants, and it is included here. The editors subsequently invited Dina Avshalom-Gorni and Nimrod Getzov to contribute a paper, as their research is specifically pertinent to the topic. The conference benefited from active and engaged discussions between all participants and the large audiences that attended every session. In retrospect, we are sorry that we did not record these exchanges, for they provided wonderful opportunities for productive conversation across generally untraveled scholarly divides. We hope that this volume will allow and encourage similar cross-disciplinary conversations.

A successful conference depends utterly on much hard behind-the-scenes work. Even two years later, we can easily recall the wonderful support provided by Judy Scullin and Kathy Walsh (Doyle) of the University of Minnesota, and Jackie Bennett of Macalester College. We thank them for their tireless care of our seemingly everchanging and often far-flung needs. In the preparation of this manuscript, Barbara Lehnhoff provided substantial assistance by scanning all of the images and creating the accompanying map. The conference received generous financial support from Steven Rosenstone, Dean of the University of Minnesota's College of Liberal Arts, Classical and Near Eastern Studies Chair William Malandra, the Macalester College Department of Classics, and the Office of the Provost of Macalester College. We received additional support for the preparation of this manuscript from the Dworsky Fund of the University of Minnesota's Jewish Studies Program. We thank these many contributors, whose work and generosity have made this publication possible.
