Already back in February, we received a record number o paper proposals, and the Programs Committee has worked overtime to put the best o these proposals together into the richest and ullest set o sessions we have ever been able to offer—covering all the major regions o the Near East and wider Mediterranean rom earliest times through the Islamic period. Te poster session too, is bursting at the seams, with a wealth o new and important research to be presented. Several special sessions this year mark important anniversaries. Tree different sessions ocus on the 50th anniversary o the Madaba Plains Project (MPP), and the MPP’s fiieth anniversary will also be celebrated at a reception on Tursday night. Te CRANE Project—Computational Research on the Ancient Near East—is also celebrating an anniversary, its fih, with two sessions on Friday aernoon and a reception that evening. Four other special sessions honor colleagues who have made especially distinguished contributions to the study o the Near East and the wider Mediterranean: Israel Finkelstein, Kenneth G. Holum, S. Tomas Parker, and Stuart Swiny. Other special receptions include the Institute or Oriental and European Archaeology (OREA) Reception on Tursday night and the Digital Archaeology Demo Showcase and Reception on Friday evening. Plus, our riends at the Harvard Semitic Museum have extended an invitation or as many o us as possible (or space reasons, there are a limited number o tickets available) to travel across the Charles River to join them or a reception on Saturday night. It is also appropriate that while we are in her home town, we honor one o one o ASOR’s most distinguished members, ormer Harvard University William Dorr Boardman Proessor o Fine Arts Irene Winter, by inviting her to give this year’s plenary address, on the topic “Archaeology, Object History, Art History: Questions o Definition and Discipline.” I’m also particularly excited about some o the new member-organized sessions that will be eatured in the ASOR Annual Meeting Program this year: or example, “Christians and Muslims in the Medieval Near East”; “Material Interconnections in the Levant during the Second Millennium B.C.E.”; and “Study o Violence rom the Region o the Ancient Near East and Its Neighbors.” Some noteworthy member-organized sessions have also been renewed, or example, “Te Archaeology o the Kurdistan Region o Iraq” and “Yerushalayim, Al Quds, Jerusalem: Recent Developments and Dilemmas in the Archaeological and Historical Studies rom the Bronze Age to Medieval Periods.” Yet another important member-organized session, “Te So Power o Place—Cultural Diplomacy, Archaeology, and the Overseas Research Centers,” allows ASOR members to reflect on the vital role played by our affiliates in Jerusalem (the W. F. Albright Institute or Archaeological Research), Amman (the American Center or Oriental Research), and Nicosia (the Cyprus American Archaeological Research Institute). Te importance and the breadth o these member-organized sessions is vivid evidence o ASOR’s greatest asset—its committed and devoted membership—and this year’s meeting aims to engage that membership in new and better ways by moving the Members’ Meeting rom Tursday, rom 12:45–2:00 (a time when many members are just arriving at the meeting or even still in transit) to Friday at the same time block. We hope this makes it possible or many more o you to attend the meeting and participate both in the meeting’s business and in its celebration o the winners o this year’s ASOR Honors and Awards.But whether at the Members’ Meeting; in paper sessions; at the “Posters on Parade” event; at the Plenary Address; or at evening receptions, I look orward to seeing each and every one o you at ASOR’s 2017 Annual Meeting. Welcome to Boston!

We are pleased to welcome the ASOR community to our hometown, which is overflowing with a rich array o culture, history, and architecture.Founded in 1630, Boston is one o the oldest cities in the United States and is Massachusetts’s capital and largest city. Boston’s history is showcased in numerous museums and historic sites and structures. oday, the area’s many colleges and universities make Boston an international center o higher education. Our conerence hotel is located in the Seaport, a neighborhood nestled between Boston’s beautiul waterront and the historic Fort Point district.With Tanksgiving nearly upon us, there are so many individuals to whom thanks are due or making our extraordinary program possible. Tis ambitious and wide-ranging meeting was overseen by one hard-working and talented committee in particular—the Annual Meeting Programs Committee, led by Co-Chairs Helen Dixon and Geoff Emberling. Tese Co-Chairs, and the Programs Committee members with whom they work, are dedicated, diligent, enthusiastic, and committed to putting together an exciting educational program o more than 650 papers and poster presentations. Tis is a record number and more than a 40% increase over last year! A ull listing o all committees can be ound on the ASOR Committees pages o this program book. Many thanks are also due to the session chairs and presenters who will bring the program to lie.I wish to thank several groups in particular or their generous financial support o receptions. Notably, the Institute or Oriental and European Archaeology (OREA) is sponsoring the reception on Tursday night; the King Abdullah University o Science and echnology together with the University o Caliornia, San Diego’s Center or Cyber-Archaeology and Sustainability and the Scripps Center or Marine Archaeology are co-hosting the Digital Archaeology Demo Showcase on Friday night. Te CRANE Project (Computational Research on the Ancient Near East) is hosting a reception on Friday evening as well. Te Foundation or Biblical Archaeology and its director, Sheila Bishop, are providing crucial financial support or student scholarships. In addition, I would like to thank all o our exhibitors and encourage you to stop by and  visit the displays. We would like to give our special thanks to this year’s sponsors, Penn State University Press (Platinum) and Te University o Chicago (Silver).Last, but not least, I would like to extend special thanks and recognition to the ASOR staff. Teir hard work and dedication throughout the year makes our Annual Meeting possible. Please mark your calendars or our 2018 Annual Meeting, which will be held at the Denver Marriott ech Center in the Denver Greenwood Village suburb rom November 14–17, 2018. Please visit the meeting website at or details. We once again anticipate a record attendance and ull hotel, so I encourage you to make your reservations early. Please let me, or any member o the ASOR staff, know i there is anything we can do to make your experience in Boston a pleasant and rewarding one. I hope you enjoy this year’s Annual Meeting.With warm regards, Andrew G.

Boston is one o America’s truly unique cities. From the Boston Harbor to Revolutionary War sites to Faneuil Hall Marketplace to Fenway Park to the multiple bastions o higher learning to the museums and restaurants, Boston is a veritable cornucopia o historic, educational, culinary, and cultural offerings. Speaking o cornucopias, we have one right here at the ASOR Annual Meeting. We received an all-time record number o abstract submissions this year—almost 700 paper proposals and 75 poster proposals. Tere are over 120 scheduled academic sessions to be led by a small army o intrepid archaeologists, biblical and Islamic scholars, anthropologists, conservators/curators, historians, and other interdisciplinary specialists working in the Near Eastern and Mediterranean regions. Since our last convocation, they have learned a lot o new stuff about old stuff and look orward to telling us what they learned and why it is important.But there is also cultural heritage to protect. And a new home to find. And business to conduct. And committee meetings to attend. And financial statements to review. And No-Doze to take. While we come together to learn and reconnect, we also meet to review our progress and chart our path orward to ensure our continued success in the uture. Tis is a momentous time in ASOR’s history. Our membership is growing; we are hovering at the all-time high water mark. We are financially strong. Our multi-aceted social media and electronic publishing initiatives are rapidly expanding. Te new ASOR website has become the go-to source or Near Eastern and Mediterranean scholarship and cultural heritage. Our influence and prestige are on a meteoric rise. None o this, o course, is possible without you, your time, your talents, and your support. For that, I thank you.So consider yoursel properly welcomed. Go orth and enjoy the Annual Meeting. Learn something new. Reconnect with old riends. Introduce yoursel to someone you don’t know. It’s time to shake hands and be riendly. Richard Coffman  Chairman o the Board  ASOR, ounded in 1900, is an international organization whose mission is to initiate, encourage, and support research into, and public understanding o, the history and cultures o the Near East and wider Mediterranean, rom the earliest times, by:• Fostering srcinal research, exploration, and archaeological fieldwork • Encouraging scholarship in the region’s languages, texts, traditions, and histories• Disseminating research results and conclusions in a timely manner, through a robust publication program, annual meeting, and other venues• Adhering to the highest ethical standards o scholarship and public discourse• Upholding the highest academic standards in interdisciplinary research and teaching• Promoting educational opportunities or undergraduates and graduates in institutions o higher education around the world• Developing engaging programs o outreach or the general public• Supporting and participating in efforts to protect, preserve, and present to the public the historic and cultural heritage o the Near East and the wider Mediterranean and to raise awareness o its degradation ASOR’s Mission  N󰁯󰁶󰁥󰁭󰁢󰁥󰁲 15–18 | B󰁯󰁳󰁴󰁯󰁮, M󰁡󰁳󰁳󰁡󰁣󰁨󰁵󰁳󰁥󰁴󰁴󰁳 ASOR PROGRAM GUIDE 2017 | 5 Welcome rom the Co-Chairs o the Annual Meeting Programs Committee, Geoff Emberling and Helen Dixon Dear Colleagues,On behal o the Programs Committee, we would like to join our colleagues in welcoming you to Boston or ASOR’s 2017 Annual Meeting.Te Annual Meeting has continued to grow over the past five years, in part because it is increasingly recognized as an exciting conerence to present (and hear about) current research on the ancient Middle East and eastern Mediterranean, including recent finds as well as innovations in method and theory.Tis year we’ve had the biggest increase in session and paper submissions o the last five years—20% more than 2016. We had so many excellent session proposals this year that we expanded the academic program to offer 10 sessions per time-slot. We will be interested in hearing how you like this ormat.As the Annual Meeting continues to grow, it supports ASOR’s vision or the 21st century, to be the “the leading organization committed to the dissemination o knowledge and understanding o the Near Eastern world.” Tanks to the energy o the Programs Committee, session chairs, and ASOR staff (particularly Arlene Press, Manager o Programs and Events) or all the work and attention that goes into planning our Annual Meeting.As in the recent past, the meeting will have our types o sessions:ASOR-sponsored sessions are standing sessions organized by geography, chronology, and discipline to provide a ramework or individually submitted papers.Member-organized sessions are proposed by ASOR members (and approved by the Programs Committee) to gather papers on a specific topic or theme or a term lasting between one and three years.Member-organized workshops are also proposed by ASOR members, and are designed to have shorter presentations with significantly more time or discussion o ocused topics. Posters are also an excellent way to learn about the latest research results. Posters will be on display throughout the conerence, but you will find authors next to their posters during the lunch break on Saturday, November 18.Tere are our session blocks per day (Tursday: blocks 1–4; Friday: blocks 5–8; Saturday: blocks 9–12), and each individual session is given a letter designation (A–J, and sometimes K). We would also like to encourage you to be thinking ahead to the 2018 ASOR meeting in Denver, November 14–17! Proposals or member-organized sessions will be due soon aer the 2017 meeting (deadline: December 15, 2017), and inormation can be ound on the ASOR website. Te Call or Papers will be announced in early January 2018 with a deadline o February 15, 2018, or paper abstract submissions. We hope to continue to gather vibrant sessions and papers that present the broad range o innovative research being carried out by ASOR members, particularly during these times that are so troubling or the region we care about so much.We hope that you will introduce yourselves to us in Boston and let us know i you have ideas or improving any aspect o the meeting.
