Kershaw Lectures in Near East Archaeology
In 1994, Norma and Reuben Kershaw established the Kershaw Lectures in Near East Archaeology with a significant endowment gift to the AIA from the Kershaw Family Trust. The lectures pay tribute to Norma, AIA Trustee Emerita and long time supporter of the AIA at all levels, and her interest in Near East archaeology. The Kershaw Lectures deal with archaeological research related to the geographic areas of the present countries of Cyprus, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and Turkey during the time between 7000 B.C. and 400 A.D.
The Kershaw Lecturers are recommended by the AIA Near East Archaeology Committee to the AIA Lecture Program Committee. Five lectures are delivered annually.
