The "Second Conference on Nabataean Studies" will
be held in Wadi Musa, Jordan, Oct. 29-31, 2002 bringing together
60 experts from around the globe to Petra to present over 50 working
papers on the ancient civilization. Participants from Syria, Lebanon,
Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Spain, France, Switzerland, Canada,
Italy, UK, USA and Korea will take part in the meeting, the second
of its kind. "The First Conference on Nabataean Studies"
was held in 1999. This year the subject of the working papers
will range from social norms to monetary systems, from art to
politics. After the conference the Al Hussein Bin Talal University
is planning to publish a book based on the papers reviewed at
the conference. This "Second Conference on Nabataean Studies"
is part of the activities of "Amman Cultural Capital 2002"
and is organized by the Arab Forum for Cultural Interaction "Bait
Al Anbat" and the Petra Regional Authority. It will be patronized
by Her Majesty Queen Rania. A report on this conference is published
on the Discussion Board.
In the fall of 2002, a group from Nabataea is planning on walking parts of the Arabian wall in southern Jordan. If you would like to join this group please let us know. Those participating will need culturally acceptable clothing, canteens, and 40 JD for meals and one night's accommodation. This is negotiable, especially if you help provide transportation, a GPS, etc. Interested parties will need to arrange their own transportation to Ma'an and back. More information will be available closer to the time. (Probably late September or sometime in October)
