About the Agade Mailing List
Jack M. Sasson, the Mary Jane Werthan Professor of Judaic and Biblical Studies at Vanderbilt University, has been collecting and distributing the Agade Mailing List for almost two decades, dating back to his position at The University of North Carolina, which still hosts the email distribution list. The Agade list forwards news and information of interest to scholars in biblical studies, Near Eastern studies, Late Antiquity, Judaica, Classics, archaeology, and even broad intellectual history. It is a valuable source of announcements, and these many guilds are in debt to Professor Sasson.

The Society of Biblical Literature has permission to collect these postings and to archive them. The Current Postings include announcements from the previous day. The Archive includes all prior announcements and will eventually date back to 2010. SBL does not supplement, eliminate, or otherwise emend the number or content of the announcements, and presents them in the order of their delivery.
Agade  List Archive on Twitter
16,190 postings from Agade (as of 24 April 2018) are archived dating back to July 2011.

To subscribe to Agade by email please send a blank email to listserv@unc.edu, and write (as subject and in first line): subscribe agade

The Petrie Museum houses around 80,000 objects, making it one of the greatest collections of Egyptian and Sudanese archaeology in the world. It illustrates life in the Nile Valley from prehistory through the time of the pharaohs, the Ptolemaic, Roman and Coptic periods to the Islamic period.

The app is a visitor guide that will help introduce you to the museum, and highlight some of its most interesting exhibits. The app uses beacon technology to automatically detect where you are in the museum and will show you relevant content automatically.
