Series: Digital Biblical Studies, Vol. 2
Editors: Vanessa Bigot Juloux, Amy Rebecca Gansell, and Alessandro Di Ludovico
CyberResearch on the Ancient Near East and Neighboring Regions provides case studies on archaeology, objects, cuneiform texts, and online publishing, digital archiving, and preservation. Eleven chapters present a rich array of material, spanning the fifth through the first millennium BCE, from Anatolia, the Levant, Mesopotamia, and Iran. Customized cyber- and general glossaries support readers who lack either a technical background or familiarity with the ancient cultures. Edited by Vanessa Bigot Juloux, Amy Rebecca Gansell, and Alessandro Di Ludovico, this volume is dedicated to broadening the understanding and accessibility of digital humanities tools, methodologies, and results to Ancient Near Eastern Studies. Ultimately, this book provides a model for introducing cyber-studies to the mainstream of humanities research.

With many thanks to my co-editors (Vanessa Juloux/Ecole des Hautes Etudes, Paris; and Alessandro di Ludovico/University of Rome). We worked together remotely from the US, France, and Italy, and, in the final days of the project, we edited around-the-clock in a sort of relay-race across time zones. Here we are enjoying a more relaxed moment, and a rare chance to be together, in Boston at the annual meeting of the American Schools for Oriental Research, November 2017.
