Hello Religious Studies students! Dr. Rangar Cline will be again participating in the Huqoq excavations in Israel in summer 2022, and OU students can participate in the excavation and field school. Please read his announcement below with details on how you can find out more:
I will be working with Prof. Jodi Magness (UNC) and supervising the excavation of part of Huqoq’s late Roman synagogue. The program for students features a four-week archaeological field school, evening lectures on historical and archaeological topics, trips to nearby historical and archaeological sites, and a two-and-a-half-day trip to Caesarea and vicinity with accommodations at the beach. Students earn six upper-division field study credits from the University of North Carolina, which then transfer back to OU.
Funding for students is available through the Schusterman Center for Judaic and Israel Studies’ Study in Israel Scholarships, OU’s Presidential International Travel Fellowships, and other outside sources.
The program dates are May 31, 2022, to July 3, 2022. More details and the UNC enrollment portal can be found here. Applications are due by February 10, 2022.
Please have interested students contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The program is being undertaken in coordination with Education Abroad at OU, and students making an application should contact Shanna Vincent at OU’s Office of Education Abroad concerning matters related to travel registration, vaccination requirements, and insurance.
More information about Huqoq can be found on the project website here and via multiple news sources here.
