CALL:

 

This year’s session will focus on questions related to writing, power, and agency. Recent studies on concepts such as cosmopolitanism (e.g., Lavan, Payne, and Weisweiler 2016) and heterarchy (e.g., Svärd 2012, 2015) have complicated assumptions about the strictly hierarchical nature of societies in ancient Mesopotamia, Anatolia, and the Levant.

We welcome submissions that explore the complicated and contingent nature of agency as evinced through the textual record. Areas of interest include the practice of object dedication, epistolary customs and diplomatics, and the economic and political role of women. We will also hold an open session and invite submissions on any topic related to written artifacts in the ancient Middle East and Mediterranean.

 

The deadline for submission of abstracts is February 15, 2020. Papers should be 20 minutes in length.

 

For further information on the meeting and submission process, please see the ASOR call for papers at
