Recipient of this year’s Dever Fellowship, which is awarded through the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR).

The Dever Fellowship is a nationally competitive fellowship that is awarded to one scholar each year whose research and teaching would benefit from intensive work with archaeological methods and materials.
