On February 19, 2015, DSR graduate Elaine Myers passed away.  Elaine completed her PhD in the department in 2007.  Her dissertation was titled The Ituraeans: Challenging Misconceptions and Evaluating the Primary Sources, and it was supervised by Peter Richardson.  Elaine later published her revised dissertation as a book with Cambridge University Press in 2013 titled, The Ituraeans and The Roman Near East: Reassessing the Sources.

We are sad to hear of her passing and send our condolences to her family.
