CALL. 15.02.2018: [PANEL 12 at ASOR 2018] Developing Isotopic Investigations in the Near East & Caucasus - Denver (CO, USA)








LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO:  The Denver Marriott Tech Center, Denver (CO, USA)

ORGANIZADOR/ORGANIZER/ORGANIZZATORE: G. Bike Yazicioglu-Santamaria; Maureen E. Marshall


INFO:  call web -




In the last decade, biogeochemical analysis has gained pace in the archaeology of the Near East and Caucasus, allowing fine-grained interpretations of mobility patterns, subsistence, diet, and infant-feeding practices in past human societies. Now embracing a holistic understanding of human ecology, isotopic research in the region is in a stage of expansion with a growing diversity of research questions (ranging from crop water management to spread of millet cultivation and from climate change to human adaptation to climate change).

Following the objectives set in our previous sessions in ASOR 2016 and 2017 Annual Meetings, our 2018 session seeks to bring together research papers that utilize various biogeochemical methods and target a wide diversity of questions. For the 2018 session we are soliciting papers on the results of new and ongoing analyses on diet, mobility, and beyond, as well as regional overviews/syntheses, revised interpretations, and/or methodological discussions that utilize previous datasets. Papers that propose new methodological, interpretative, and thematic frameworks and/or new sampling strategies, lab procedures, and instrumental techniques in isotopic analyses are particularly welcome.

ABSTRACTS (due February 15 and 250 words or less) can be submitted via ASOR's Online Abstract Management System at Please note that professional membership ( and registration ( for the Annual Meeting are required at the time of abstract submission.

ROUND TABLE: We are also looking forward to holding a second brief Round Table for our Isotopic Research in Near East and Caucasus Working Group (under ASOR Business Meetings). Please RSVP if you would like to attend the round table to allow us sufficient time to reserve a place and time (2 hours) on the Annual Meeting Schedule. Please contact Bike Yazicioglu-Santamaria at for further details and round table reservations.
