Congratulations to Dr. John A. Lynch on the completion of his UCLA Ph.D.

John LynchPlease join me in congratulating Dr. John A. Lynch upon the completion of his doctoral dissertation and the
earning of his Ph.D. degree in Near Eastern Languages and Cultures with an emphasis in Assyriology.

Dr. Lynch’s dissertation is entitled, “Gilgamesh’s Ghosts: The Dead, Textual Variation, and the Mesopotamian Scribal Tradition.” It examines the textual variations between manuscripts of the ancient story of Gilgamesh and what they can tell us about the scribal practices and religious beliefs of ancient Mesopotamians.

Congratulations John!
