Dr. Jennifer Ramsay recently participated in a National Geographic-funded Archaeological Excavation.

Dr. Ramsay executed a quick but productive excavation project at the site of Shivta in the Negev Desert, Israel during April and May.

She plans to uncover information regarding the environment and economy of this Roman and Byzantine period occupation site.

This work follows a prelimary study produced and published in 2010 that uses archaeobotanical remains recovered from ancient dovecotes to look at issues of economy and ecology.

Professor Neal Keating participated in an Expert Meeting on peace sustainability at Columbia University on October 23, organized through the Advanced Consortium on Cooperation, Conflict, and Complexity, part of the Earth Institute at Columbia. The expert meeting was convened to discuss and examine the design of a new approach to modeling sustainable peace systems at local to global scales, that makes use of non-linear systems of causality that are grounded in temporalities of historical memory, future expectations, and the current existence of conflict resolution mechanisms and peace-promoting practices.
