The Call for Papers for the upcoming workshop in Beirut “The Changing and Enduring Face of the Ancient Near East: The Impact of Migration and Imperialism through the Ages” has been extended until the 8th of April.
This workshop invites scholars of Near Eastern archaeology whose research centers on exploring the patterns of change and continuity within local societies, cultures and populations between the Bronze Age and the late Roman period. Different methodologies and interdisciplinary approaches to this topic of research are welcome, including theoretical, material, epigraphic and scientific approaches.
This event is jointly organized by the Finnish Institute in the Middle East (FIME) and the University of Helsinki’s Centre of Excellence in Ancient Near Eastern Empires (ANEE).
The workshop will be held at the Lebanese National Library (LNL), in Beirut, on the 24th and the 25th of August, 2022, and will be followed by a day-long excursion to the Bekaa valley on the 26th of August, 2022. In Bekaa valley, we visit the archaeological sites of Baalbek and Anjar, as well as the famous local Ksara winery.
