The Near East is the heartland of ancient glassmaking, from the Bronze Age through the Islamic period. Following upon a successful session at the 2016 meeting in San Antonio, we again seek papers which investigate complex historical and archaeological questions using archaeological, art historical, philological, or scientific sources on glass and glass making. We also encourage papers from non-glass specialists who engage with the material in other ways. Possible topics include but are not limited to the role of glass in daily life, trade and exchange, workshop organization and artistic production, identity and taste, materiality, or site-based reports which speak to issues beyond typology and chronology. The ASOR session "Glass in the Ancient Near East" appears on the http://www.asor.org/am/2017/approved.html#glass on the http://www.asor.org/am/index.html.
