Abstracts are now invited for the 2024 ASOR Session on Gender in the Ancient Near East to be held at the Annual Meeting in Boston between November 20 and 23, 2024. This will be a hybrid session that combines in-person and virtual presentations.

This session pertains to on-going archaeological, art historical, and/or historiographic research into the construction and expression of gender in antiquity, ancient women/womanhood, ancient masculinities (hegemonic
and otherwise), and the engendering of ancient objects and spaces. All approaches and methodologies welcomed.

Abstracts must be submitted *by March 15* via the ASOR online abstract management system:
