This series hosted by the Babylonian Collection is held monthly during the academic year. The talks feature current research  by professors, independent and post-doctoral scholars, and visiting researchers from around the world who are consulting materials in the Collection.

The NELC Lecture series is a platform for NELC faculty to present their works in progress and scholarship to other members of the department. Lectures typically take place once or twice a semester.

NELC Roundtable lectures offer students the opportunity to rehearse public speaking about work in progress and to receive feedback from faculty and peers in an informal atmosphere.

The K. W. and E. K. Rosenthal Memorial Lectures in Ancient and Near Eastern Civilizations, endowed in memory of his parents by Franz Rosenthal, one of the Yale’s distinguished faculty members, feature eminent scholars in the Department’s major fields of study.

The series aims to bring together scholars from all the various subfields of Egyptology and offers a wide range of thematic lectures, with a discussion platform for the presentation of current research projects and field work.
