Feasting Across Time: Hospitality and Feasts in the Ancient World a free lunch-hour talk by Geoff Emberling Friday, May 25, 12 pm
Throughout our long history, feasts have taken many different forms within cultural traditions.
In this free talk, archaeologist Geoff Emberling explores a range of banquets in early Mesopotamia and asks whether these ancient feasts continue to inform politics and food in the more recent history of the Middle East.
Presented in conjunction with Feast: Radical Hospitality in Contemporary Art, on view at the Smart Museum through June 10.
