danes - Digital Ancient Near Eastern Studies

Subject: Digital Ancient Near Eastern Studies

Description: We want to bring together international scholars from historical, archaeological, philological, and computational disciplines studying the ancient Near East. One of the main aims of this gathering is to establish a collaborative research network for the application of computational and quantitative methods to the study of the cuneiform cultures from greater Mesopotamia to the eastern Mediterranean. The definition of cuneiform cultures in this context is as broad as possible, including all peoples who wrote in cuneiform from the Sumerians to the Persians.
Digital ancient Near Eastern Studies (sometimes also called Digital
Assyriology) is a growing field, and we hope that this meeting will kick-start a periodical gathering, bringing together historians, archaeologists, and computer scientists in synergy.
