We are seeking participants for the session "Meeting the Expenses: ANE Economies" of the American School of Oriental Research Annual Meeting at Denver CO, November 14-17, 2018. We would welcome papers on ANE economies that move beyond the dichotomy of "ancient" versus "modern" economy, dealing with written records and archaeological remains (or both). For the 2018 meeting we will welcome especially papers on trade, traders, and markets. Issues such as private and institutionalized traders; long range and local trade; taboos on trade and relation to trade/traders in various sources; evidence for activity of "institutionalized" traders in markets; physical and written evidence for markets; roles of markets and estimating efficiency of markets/trade networks; profits, risks, and loses in trade; and the language of trading (how 'players' communicated and understood the terms of each other). Interested lecturers please submit a title and abstract (max. 250 words). The deadline for submission is February 15, 2018. In order to present a paper one must be a current professional member of ASOR (http://www.asor.org/membership/) and register for the Annual Meeting when submitting your abstract (http://www.asor.org/am/2018-registration/ ). Please submit your abstract directly to ASOR's Online Abstract Submission Site at: http://www.asor.org/am/2018-call-for-papers/ chosing the session "Meeting the Expenses". Please send any comments and questions to Raz Kletter ( firstname.lastname@example.org ).
