This session will facilitate research among scholars of the ancient Near East to provide long-term viewpoints on global challenges facing humanity in the 21st century. The United Nation's Millennium Project (http://www.millennium-project.org/) has identified 15 Global Challenges including peace and conflict, energy, sustainable development, and democratization. Participants will tackle these issues through their original research and explore ways archaeologists can contribute uniquely informed, deep-time perspectives to international efforts by governments, international organizations and futurists addressing these challenges. This session will raise awareness about the role archaeology can play in overcoming the Global Challenges, provide case studies for direct engagement with one or more of the issues at hand, and create an interface between archaeologists and policy makers. The deadline for submission of abstracts is March 1, 2017. Please submit your abstract (max. 250 words) directly to ASOR’s Online Abstract Management System:http://www.asor.org/am/2017/papers.html and select “Archaeologists Engaging Global Challenges” for the session. Please note that professional membership and registration for the Annual Meeting is required at the time of abstract submission.
