Style and stylistic analysis play a foundational role in the study of ancient Near Eastern (ANE) visual culture. Earlier approaches have built stylistically-based geographical and chronological classifications for both objects and the individuals thought to produce them. Though style has often been understood to be an indicator of culture and therefore identity, ancient Near Eastern scholars (e.g., Silvana Di Paolo, Marian Feldman, and Constance von Rüden) have shown that style is not reflective of identity in a straightforward way. Instead, artistic style can be used to explore the dynamics of craft training, social practices, political or ideological constructions, and more. Papers in this session are asked to explore the relationship between style and identity through specific case studies, using individual artworks, groups of objects, or elements of craft practice. Papers could, for example, work to define the relationship between craft training and practice, analyze the utility of modern stylistic classifications, or explore style as a conscious/unconscious reflex as informed by existing discussions of intentionality and habitus.
