Concepts of Governance and the Study of Ancient Near Eastern Societies

Sixteenth Symposium of the Melammu Project
July 12-14, 2023

Organisers: Eva Cancik-Kirschbaum and Jörg Klinger

Symposium Program

The 16th Melammu Symposium 2023 will discuss the description of governance structures and related socio-political processes in the ancient Near East. A major issue will be the question of categories and concepts used to describe and deal with these phenomena ever since.
