An Event in Honour of Emeritus Professor Tony (Antonio) Sagona.

An emerging shift in the field of Ancient Near Eastern Studies has seen a change of geographical emphasis away from more traditional areas of study to places that were previously misinterpreted as less significant peripheries. In this context, Tony Sagona’s early and enduring focus on Eastern Turkey and the Southern Caucasus now seems especially prescient. This event is a celebration of Tony’s outstanding career and of his legacy, which is reflected in the University of Melbourne’s continuing work on the frontiers of his discipline.
