The Assyrian and Babylonian Intellectual Heritage Project (Melammu) investigates the continuity, transformation and diffusion of Mesopotamian culture throughout the ancient world from the second millennium BC until Islamic times. It is the perfect partner for the IHANE project. The symposia have in the past been important forums and now, after a pause of five years, professor Robert Rollinger and Dr Erik van Dongen (see an earlier post regarding them) have undertaken to organize the 7th symposia in Austria. “Mesopotamia in the ancient world: Impact Continuity, Parallels” will take place in Obergurgl, Tyrol, November 4-8th 2013.
The web pages of the conference have been opened here, and more information regarding the Melammu project you can find here.
