The Melammu Project

The Heritage of Mesopotamia and the Ancient Near East

The Melammu Project board consists of scholars from a wide variety of disciplines related to the project's focus. The main function of the board members is to promote the project and its meetings in the academic community and to safeguard the continuity of the project. For that reason, although the exact board size can vary, the board always consists of equally sized groups of senior and junior scholars (loosely defined). These include the organizers of future events, proceedings and website editors, and others. The board is always elected for two years at one of the Melammu Symposia; the last election took place in 2022, at Melammu Symposia 15 in Graz.
