This session explores connections between polities and geography, and how ancient people negotiated systems of power and government within their physical settings. Our knowledge of political geography in the ANE is filtered through centuries of scholarship at times promoting notions of control that could use amended analyses. In light of this, this session welcomes papers that reinterpret dynamics between polities based on supporting archaeological or textual discoveries, or experiment with theoretical approaches that enlighten our
understanding of an established data-set. Papers could argue, for instance, that a different model of control is more appropriate to explain evidence of a geopolitical relationship than previously put forth, or show how recent archaeological or textual discoveries require us to reevaluate our understanding of the power dynamics in a region. Special attention to how people in the ancient world perceived their own geopolitical structures or how geography served to define a city or region is encouraged.
