Associazione Internazionale di Archeologia Classica (AIAC)

The American Academy in Rome will host a panel presentation of AIAC, the Associazione Internazionale di Archeologia Classica/International Association for Classical Archaeology (AIAC), in that organization's longstanding Incontri series. The current president of the association is Elizabeth Fentress, former American Academy in Rome Mellon Professor-in-Charge (1996–99).

Founded in Rome in 1945, AIAC aims to facilitate international collaboration among classical archaeologists through coordinating conferences and congresses of classical archeology. It also serves in Rome as the principal clearinghouse for information on archaeology-related scholarly events. AIAC publishes Fasti Online, the premier international database for archaeological excavations in thirteen countries in the territory of the former Roman Empire (including of course Italy), which in turn continues its print Fasti Archaeologici (published 1948–87). Since 2000, AIAC also has organized a series of monthly Incontri in Rome, where young scholars from Italian universities and the many foreign institutes in the city can present their research.

The theme for this evening at the American Academy in Rome will be Reflections of Power in Rome during the Augustan-Julian Claudian Period, moderated by Steven Ellis (American Academy in Rome). Presenting on the AIAC program will be Valeria Di Cola (Università degli Studi Roma Tre), L'arco "di Druso" sulla via Appia: una rilettura and Richard Teverson (British School at Rome), Josephus, Jericho and the Julio-Claudians: the Performance of Kingship in First-century Judea.
