From Dr. Dorothy King's PhDiva blog: "Donny George gave a lecture at the British Museum this evening. He was introduced by Neil MacGregor, and the news is that he will be moving from Damascus to Stony Brook University, New York. Elizabeth Stone, who has done a great deal of work on Iraqi archaeology, teaches there, and will help him continue his work." Dr. Stone led the USAID Iraq-HEAD project (Higher Education and Development for Archaeology and Environmental Health Research) that ran from 2003 to 2004 but whose funding was not renewed. Lately, she has been working on using satellite imagery to track looting of archaeological sites in Iraq. Her colleague, husband and long-time collaborator, Dr. Paul Zimansky, has also joined her at Stony Brook, leaving his position at Boston University. I'd love to hear more about all the plans!
