4000 mille ans de disputes... - 15-16/02/2018, Genève (Switzerland)

At the University of Geneva a research project studies world’s oldest disputation literature written down in Sumerian language. The project aims at editing a group of 15 Sumerian disputation texts comprising precedence disputations, disputations between students and between women. As a conclusion of the project we organize an interdisciplinary conference from 15th to 16th February 2018 in Geneva with the objective to compare disputation literature in different cultures in order to better understand the oldest examples of this genre.
