San Diego, CA
Session co-chairs: Emily Miller Bonney and Leann Pace
This session welcomes papers that deal explicitly with theoretical and anthropological approaches to art and archaeology in the ancient Near East and eastern Mediterranean. In past years, the session has received enough quality papers to warrant holding at least two sections of the session at the Annual Meeting. This year, in one of these sections we seek to feature papers focused on non-elite segments of ancient society and the more everyday aspects of human life in the Near East. We look forward to considering abstracts addressing this area of focus, as well as those that employ theoretical and anthropological approaches to the study of the ancient Near East and Mediterranean world more broadly.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is February 15, 2014.
Professional membership in ASOR and registration for the Annual Meeting is required at the time of abstract submission (directions will be provided in the confirmation of abstract receipt). Abstracts will not be reviewed until first authors of the papers have registered for the meeting. Should an abstract not be accepted, the registration fee can be refunded. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this policy.
