CALL:

We invite you to submit an abstract for our new 2018 (Denver) ASOR session, "Study of Violence from the Region of the Ancient Near East and Its Neighbors” SESSION DESCRIPTION:

Violence is a common motif that appears throughout the well-studied narrative and historical texts and images from the region of the ancient Near East and its neighbors, from Prehistory to Late Antiquity. Although depicted in both divine and human realms (e.g. Enuma Elish, Stele of Vultures, Chronicles, Battle of Qadesh, Baʿlu Cycle, Torah, Josephus), violence, whether physical or psychological (e.g. interpersonal, corporate, or structural), has been insufficiently studied from the perspectives of intention, motivation and legacy. For this second year on violence, we will investigate the topic through the following methodological frameworks: the intentions (voluntary or not) and motivations of the authors or creators in their use of violence as part of the narrative arc either in texts, images,or material culture. We welcome abstracts from art historians, philologists, historians, anthropologists, and scholars interested in extending their analysis of violence beyond the bounds of traditional text-oriented approaches and determinism. We envision an interdisciplinary session attracting papers from Prehistorians, Assyriologists, Bible scholars, Hittitologists, Egyptologists, Aegeanists, and Byzantinists alike. This year ASOR will be held in Denver, Colorado, November 14-17. Abstracts (250 words or less) must be submitted electronically by March 1st: https://app.oxfordabstracts.com/stages/453/submission Note that ASOR membership and conference registration are required at the time of abstract submission: http://www.asor.org/am/2018-registration/ For European student registration: if these fees present an obstacle, please be in touch with one of us: Vanessa Juloux <vanessa.juloux@ephe.sorbonne.fr> Leann C. Pace <pacelc@wfu.edu>
