1993-94 Annual Report
Erica Reiner attended the festive opening in November of the Grand Louvre, in particular the newly opened wing where the Department of Oriental Antiquities has its new home, and where a cast of the Oriental Institute's winged bull is now on exhibit.
In February, she was an invited speaker at the conference on Religion and the Social Order at the University of South Florida, where she gave a paper on Babylonian Religion. The paper will be published in the Proceedings of the Conference.
In May, she participated in the Ancient Astronomy and Celestial Divination Workshop at the Dibner Institute for the History of Science and Technology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge. Her paper, titled "Babylonian Celestial Divination," spurred a lively discussion of the topic. The papers of the Workshop will appear in a volume edited by the Dibner Institute.
