CANCELLED – Upcoming Lecture: Monsters and Vision in the Preclassical Mediterranean

Due to a last-minute emergency, the February 5th talk by Dr. Nassos Papalexandrou has been cancelled. We will do our best to reschedule Dr. Papalexandrou on a future date. In lieu of the talk, the AIA Central Arizona Society will be having a movie night starting at 6pm at the ASU Tempe Campus, Business and Administration Building, C Wing (BAC) Room 116. We will be showing “The Man Who Discovered Egypt”, a BBC special on Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie, one of the foremost Egyptologists of all time. Snacks will be provided for all attendees.

We apologize for this sudden change, and we hope that you will join us for the movie and the remainder of the springtime lectures.
