Event description: 

Building upon two decades of edge-finding archaeological research, the Yale Ancient Pharmacology Program continues to refine a transdisciplinary approach that seamlessly blends ethnography, materiality, and technology. Nucleating at the Yale Peabody Museum has allowed YAPP to work across its divisions and vast collections to push our knowledge of ancient organic materials through the fusion of ethnohistory, phytochemistry, and data science. Buttressed by Yale’s commitment to the liberal arts, YAPP is just beginning to explore the possibilities of working across the university at burgeoning intersections between the humanities and sciences.
