The Archeo-oriental Seminar – lecture of dr. Karel Innemée

We have the pleasure invite you to the archeo-oriental seminar on which dr. Karel Innemée (Faculty of Humanities, University of Amsterdam) will give a lecture on “The non-verbal communication of costumes of authority”.
The lecture will be held on Monday (May 30) at 11:30 AM.

Link to the Zoom Meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83327401035qr

Abstract:
“Costumes of wordly and religious leaders have multiple layers of meaning. Firstly, there is the aspect of ‘dress to impress’, often by making the person look larger than others. Secondly, there are ways of ‘reading’ the costume and its details. For the outsider it will be clear that he/she is dealing with a king, queen or bishop, but the insiders will be able to distinguish more details, hidden in attributes and decorations. How far are we, as researchers, able to go into this non-verbal language of costumes of authority? A case study from Nubia as a foretaste of a new research project.”

Dr hab. Dobrochna Zielińska at the Archaeo-Oriental Seminar

We invite you on Monday (09 May) at 11:30 AM to the Archaeo-Oriental Seminar, where dr hab. Dobrochna Zielińska (from the Faculty of Archaeology) will give a lecture on “Nubian Authorities in Painted Church Decoration”.
Abstract:
Monumental representations of Nubian authorities are one of the most characteristic features of Nubian art. This tradition has been also continued in Medieval Nubia and portrait representations of most important figures for the kingdom of Makuria became part of the iconographical programme in Nubian churches. This presentation will be an overview of monuments where such representations are preserved. Also places in the sacral interiors where these portraits were located will be discussed, as well as character of these representations. The state of research on this topic will be presented, as well as the analysis that initiated a new project developed at the University of Warsaw.

May 4 and 5 – days free from classes

Dear students, dear Colleagues,

After consultations with the dean’s team and taking into account the exceptionally long summer semester in the current academic year, I decided to announce May 4 and 5 days free from classes and lectures at the Faculty of Archeology of the University of Warsaw (note! This does not apply to classes conducted outside the faculty, such as OGUN, foreign language courses and sports). I hope that this will allow you to enjoy the “Juwenalia” on May 6 and 7 (also days free from classes) and after the extended May weekend you will return to learning with enthusiasm.

Yours faithfully,

Elżbieta Jaskulska

We are also happy to announce that proceedings in every panel will be opened by the keynote speeches delivered by recognized specialists from various institutions.
