CRAIG (Classics, Religion, Anthropology and Archaeology Inter-disciplinary Group)

CRAIG aims at collaborative activities between the University of Calgary members interested in the study of Classics, Religion, Archaeology and Anthropology. Graduate students and faculty members from the two departments, CLARE and ANTHARKY, are engaged in projects of interdisciplinary nature, combining material studies and literary source material. The field methods from Archaeology, conceptual framework of Anthropology and the literary component integrated from Classics and Religion will form a concrete base for further collaborative activities. The methodological overlap between the two components enables further dialogue, which will be facilitated through this group.

1. Providing a platform for the graduate student community for inter-disciplinary work across Classics, Religion, Archaeology and Anthropology
2. Workshops and introductory lectures to familiarise Classicists, scholars of religion, Anthropologists and Archaeologists of the methodologies from the other fields to better articulate a firm working ground
3. Collaborative projects, leading into tangible knowledge translation such as publication and public outreach
