DUSANE 2022 – Dutch Symposium of the Ancient Near East – 14 April


Date: 14 April 2022

Location: Van Steenis Building (Faculty of Archaeology), Einsteinweg 2, Leiden

Credits: 1 ECT

We are happy to announce the 13th edition of DUSANE, the Dutch Symposium of the Ancient Near East. DUSANE is organized by a of the study association for Archaeology L.A.S. Terra, and Ancient Near Eastern Studies, Dispuut Pleyte, linked to Leiden University.

It’s often common for passionate academic communities to isolate themselves, utterly focused on their own research. Therefore, people from Archaeology, Egyptology, Assyriology, Islamic Studies and other relevant disciplines rarely have a chance to meet, share their research and exchange perspectives and experiences. Our aim is to bridge this gap by bringing together different researchers who work in different regions and specializations within Near Eastern Studies. Therefore, during this symposium, several researchers from various specializations will present their latest research related to the ancient Near East. Anyone with an interest in the several civilizations and cultures of the Near East is welcome to attend.
