CFP: Exploring the Production of … Dress in the Ancient and Classical Near East” (ASOR Baltimore 2013)

Seen on the Agade list:

Call for Papers: "EXPLORING THE PRODUCTION OF OBJECTS RELATED TO
DRESS IN THE ANCIENT and CLASSICAL NEAR EAST." Member-organized
session at the annual meeting of ASOR, November 20-23, 2013 in
Baltimore

In the past two years at the ASOR meetings, (2011-12), the
member-organized sessions on Dress in the Ancient and Classical Near
East were broadly conceived allowing exploration of clothing and
textiles as well as objects related to adornment. As such, they have
included many interesting papers from a wide variety of geographic and
chronological contexts. The session for 2013 aims to both continue
and push beyond the broad category of dress and ask presenters to
consider how their findings relate to the PRODUCTION of objects
related to dress. Scholars could approach questions such as (but not
limited to) what are the archaeological markers for textile production
at sites? Or, what social and cultural factors affect the production
of dress items? I encourage submission of abstracts that explore a
variety of objects and a broad arena of geographic and chronological
contexts within the Near East.

Please direct questions to the session organizer: Allison Thomason,
Professor of History, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville,
althoma.

Submissions via the ASOR website. Deadline is February 15, 2013.
