Yale Babylonian Collection Exhibition Seminar

Working on the upcoming exhibition of objects from the Yale Babylonian Collection at the Peabody Museum, students learn how to design an exhibition of cuneiform tablets, seals, and other artifacts from ancient Mesopotamia. Students experience hands-on aspects of museum work, determining how best to display objects in the museum space and present them in the exhibition catalog, for which they write individual entries.
