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

ORGANIZADOR/ORGANIZER/ORGANIZZATORE: Stephanie Selover (University of Washington); Pinar Durgun (Brown University)

INFO: call - web -


Mortuary archaeology has often been hindered by culture-historical approaches that see a direct correlation between burial objects and the identity or social status of the deceased. This session aims to challenge such perceptions. Past ASOR papers presented on the archaeology of death and burial have proven the necessity for a session to continue conversations on understanding diverse reactions to death beyond equating burial objects with social complexity. We would like to invite papers that make use of mortuary data to answer questions about practices of death and dying in the ancient Near East, including change and continuity in mortuary objects and rituals, the use and reuse of burial spaces, and expressions of social memory, especially in periods that are under-represented in the study of ancient Near East. ASOR is currently accepting abstracts for its 2018 Annual Meeting to be held November 14–17 in Denver, CO. The deadline to submit abstracts has been extended to March 1. The $25 late fee can be waived if you contact the session chairs and we approve the paper. Please visit the ASOR Annual Meeting website for more information: If you have any questions please feel free to contact Stephanie Selover ( or Pinar Durgun (
