With Joyce Reynolds in Libya 1988-1993
by Dr Susan Walker FSA, Ashmolean Museum and Wolfson College, Oxford
Dr Walker writes: “In this talk I hope to catch a flavour of Joyce’s long, active life by focussing on a brief period of five years in which I worked with her in Cyrene, eastern Libya. Though it seems but a passing moment even within Joyce’s sixty years of engagement with Libya, the memories of our visits to the extraordinary site of Cyrene remain vivid. They reflect Joyce’s scholarship, her passion for teaching, her warm friendships with Libyan, Italian, French, American and British colleagues, and her profound commitment to understanding not only ancient Cyrenaica but also the political and social realities of modern Libya.”
