Ancient Near East


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: At iSBL 2020, the Ancient Near East unit will hold two sessions: 1) an open session and 2) a session focusing on gender and identity in the ancient Near East. Papers in both sessions should engage with theory in related disciplines (e.g., the study of religion, sociolinguistics, and anthropology), which offer new insights into the study of the ancient world. We encourage underrepresented scholars in the field to apply, in particular (but not limited to) those from regions less represented in ANE studies. The open session solicits papers that engage with texts, languages, and material remains from the ANE, including but not limited to the study of ancient Anatolia, Arabia, Egypt, Iran, the Levant, and Mesopotamia. Scholars may want to consider ecological approaches to the ANE in coordination with the larger iSBL 2020 theme. The session focusing on gender and identity in the ANE will prioritize papers that seriously take into account the theoretical foundations of Gender Studies. The intellectual aim of this session is to facilitate a conversation about the critical application of Gender Studies methodologies to the ancient world.
