Looking forward to the Third Workshop on Gender, Methodology and the Ancient Near East, in Ghent, Belgium this April! I’ll be presenting “Images of Divinely Sanctioned Neo-Assyrian Queenship at Nimrud’s Northwest Palace.” The preliminary program is here: http://www.gemane3.ugent.be/programme/.
The mission of the Workshop is to “bring together both established and up-and-coming scholars whose work brings gender studies theory to bear on various materials and contexts in order to discuss different methodological approaches to gender studies within the framework of Ancient Near Eastern studies.” http://www.gemane3.ugent.be/call-for-papers/
I’m looking forward to seeing so many international colleagues again and continuing our conversations from the first two Workshops, held in Helsinki (October 2014) and Barcelona (February 2017). It has been an incredible experience to participate in these very rigorous yet highly constructive and professionally supportive Workshops. Since 2014, our collective knowledge and methodologies have grown substantially, and many exciting new collaborations have been established among participants.
