The topic of this symposium is to engage with contemporary study of empire in the Ancient Near East. Empire in Ancient Near Eastern studies, like most terminology, has undergone great fluctuation in meaning and scope over time; unfortunately, such permeability of definition has fostered some neglect in interdisciplinary research parallel to our field. Because cuneiform source material extends for over three millennia in a dozen disparate languages and across cultures, it is our duty to address this material, not with exceptionalism, but as historians of culture and development in dialogue with others who study the same.
