Description (abstract)

ANEE asks: How do changing imperial dynamics impact social group identities and lifeways over a millennium? Marshalling a cross-disciplinary arsenal of methods and scholars through the Neo-Assyrian, Neo-Babylonian, Persian, Hellenistic, and early Roman / Parthian eras, ANEE overcomes the very real challenge of dialogue between ancient historians, archaeologists and social scientists. ANEE investigates dialectical identity-building processes with three interlocking teams.
