Baghdad Committee

The Baghdad Committee (whose formal name is the Committee on Mesopotamian Civilization) oversees the production of the Journal of Cuneiform Studies (JCS), has published a newsletter on archaeological and other research in Iraq, has coordinated field projects throughout Iraq, and for a period of time had an Institute functioning in Baghdad. The committee recommends recipients for the Mesopotamian Fellowship to the ASOR board. This fellowship funds researchers studying the region, through the generosity of the James B. Nies Trust. For more information, read a history of ASOR's Baghdad School which operated in Iraq from 1923-1969. For information on archaeological research in Iraq, see the Iraq information page.
