As part of Warsaw Science Diplomacy School 2021 (WSDS), this case study dissects the strike of Bedouin workers at the German excavation of Tell Chuera (North Syria) in 1963 in order to examine the broader theme of colonial practices in Near Eastern Archaeology during the post-colonial era.

Lecturer: Tobias Helms, University of Mainz, Germany

The WSDS is organized by the Horizon 2020 project InsSciDE – Inventing a shared Science Diplomacy for Europe.
