ORGANIZADOR/ORGANIZER/ORGANIZZATORE: Oya Topçuoğlu (Northwestern University);  Sarah J.Scott (Wagner College)


INFO: web -




When studied from an interdisciplinary perspective, seals and sealing practices can genuinely contribute to our understanding of ancient Near Eastern society. This session invites submissions touching on any aspect of glyptic studies and reflecting recent developments in the functional, stylistic, and iconographic analysis of seals and sealings.  Papers may approach seals and sealings as object, text, and/or image, and rely on multiple strands of evidence. Applied methodologies from a variety of disciplines are encouraged. While seals and sealings form the core subject of investigation for this session, papers that rely on a wide range of comparative objects are welcome.  Glyptic-related topics covering the full geographical and chronological horizon of the ancient Near East are considered.

Abstracts of 250 words or less should be submitted via ASOR's Online Abstract Management System at
The deadline for submissions is February 15, 2019.

Please note that ASOR membership and registration for the San Diego meeting are required at the time of abstract submission.
Please contact Oya Topçuoğlu at for questions.
