Call for Papers: New Relational Approaches to First Millennium Empires

Are you working with networks and first millennium Empires? Interested in writing about the meaning of network studies for the study of identities?

We are pleased to announce an open call for papers for edited volume “New Relational Approaches to Ancient Near Eastern Empires: Using Networks for Micro and Macro Perspectives on Identities.” The volume is edited by Saana Svärd, Jason Silverman, Antti Lahelma and Tia Sager. Svärd, Silverman and Lahelma are leading the University of Helsinki’s Centre of Excellence in Ancient Near Eastern Empires (ANEE).

The book is based on the work of the Centre of Excellence. This large research group (30-40 researchers) has worked for years on the research topic of how changing empires impact social group identities and lifeways over a millennium. Instead of treating these empires in isolation, we have brought a cross-disciplinary arsenal of methods and scholars, working through the first millennium BCE Empires in the Middle East: Neo-Assyrian, Neo-Babylonian, Persian, Hellenistic, and early Roman/Parthian Empires.

One of the main challenges for our research group has been to create fruitful and intensively interdisciplinary and collaborative research. A productive solution has emerged in our joint work – a relational approach as codified in the network sciences! The volume’s novelty is its focus on interdisciplinary discussions between linguistics, philological/historical studies, and archaeology and combining that with the focus on scale: examining the value of network approaches in the study of identities both from micro- and macro perspectives. Focus is on the added value of network methods: what is the relationship between networks as methods on the one hand and the study of identities and social groups on the other. The volume includes response chapters from various fields as well as reflective chapters to assess critically the uses and promises of network approaches.

With this open call, we encourage scholars in all career stages working on any of these time periods to submit proposals examining what network approaches can reveal regarding the construction and evolution of identities (understood in a broad sense) and lifeways under the first millennium empires in the ancient Near East.

Please submit your preliminary title and abstract (max. 400 words) by 30th August 2024 to saana.svard@helsinki.fi. Formal guidelines for submitting the manuscript will be circulated upon acceptance of the proposal. The planned deadline for selected chapters is 1st of June 2025.

We plan to submit the manuscript to Palgrave McMillan series The New Antiquity, hopefully as an open access publication (details to be confirmed later) with a publication date in 2026.

Postdoctoral Researcher in Archaeology (Helsinki)

We are recruiting a team of researchers (four postdoctoral researchers and a PhD researcher) to collaborate in Dr. Jason Silverman’s ERC Advanced Grant Project "Work without End: Informal Taxation and Forced Labor within Persian Southern Levantine Temple Economy and Society (WORK-IT)" at the University of Helsinki. WORK-IT will run from Sept 2024 to Aug 2029. Each researcher is expected to be able to research and publish independently as well as collaboratively within the team.

Using temples in the southern Levant under the first Persian Empire as the focus, WORK-IT explores imperial-local socio-economic interaction. The project integrates analysis of informal taxation and forced labor via Bourdieusian field theory in the analysis of Persian-era sources. The analysis of informal taxation and forced labor will be useful to both economists and sociologists via the most up-to-date ANE data and analyses, bridging the lingering divide between ancient historians and modern social scientists. The ultimate goal is to provide some refined perspectives for the modern theory of preindustrial socio-economic interactions.

Towards these ends, we invite applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher in Ancient history for a two-year employment contract starting in September 2024 or as agreed. We are seeking an archaeologist with a background in the Persian-era Southern Levant analyze temple remains from the Persian southern Levant for material capacities and labor requirements.

Requirements for the position and assessment of qualifications

According to the Regulations of the University of Helsinki, an appointee to the position of postdoctoral researcher shall hold a doctoral degree and have the ability to conduct independent scholarly work as well as the teaching skills necessary for the position.

Other requirements shall include knowledge of Persian-era archaeology, and interest in socio-economic aspects of the southern Levant. A track record in comparative work is an advantage. Candidates need to be able to write independently and collaboratively. A pre-existing interest in labor or temples is an advantage.

When assessing applicants’ qualifications, attention will be paid to evidence of interest in comparative theoretical socio-economic work, evidence of collaborative publication in social aspects of archaeology, and the ability to offer research-based teaching. A familiarity with or interest in Bourdieusian field theory is also desirable.

What we offer

The salary for the position will be based on level 5 of the job requirement scheme for teaching and research personnel in the salary system of Finnish universities. In addition, the appointee will be paid a salary component based on personal performance. The annual gross salary is €42,000 – €46,000. The position is filled with a six-month trial period.

These positions are offered part-time (30 hours per week) for three years, starting 1 October 2024.

The CoE EurAsia undertakes comprehensive research on the transformation processes in Eurasia, encompassing the combined landmasses of Europe and Asia and serving as a focal point of scholarly discourse from antiquity to the present (https://www.oeaw.ac.at/eurasian-transformations/). The DC Entangled Antiquities delves into the fascinating and significant interdependencies between Europe, Asia and Africa from around 1500 BC to the present day, which have often influenced geopolitical dynamics. Particular emphasis will be placed on the analysis of hyper-spatial imaginaries, discourses and connectivities that have both connected and divided various imperial entities, ethnic diasporas and foreign communities (https://www.uibk.ac.at/en/doctorate-college-entangled-antiquities/).

PhD Research Areas: The doctoral positions are offered in the fields of Ancient History and Ancient Near Eastern Studies, Classical Archaeology, and Modern German Literature, focusing on research in the following subject areas:

·        Ancient spatial concepts (mental maps) and imperial borderlands of the Achaemenid-Persian empire

·        The role of religious communities and corporations in transregional networks in the Eurasian worlds of Late Antiquity

·        The classical ideal and orientalism in the visual politics of Antiquity

·        Two empires – the Habsburg Monarchy and its view of Japan

·        Habsburg border regions – views on Galicia and Bukovina

Main tasks: Completion of a doctoral thesis and publications related to one of the specified research areas; significant contribution to the organisation of conferences and workshops and participation in training and education activities within the DC Entangled Antiquities; participation in the further development of the existing Doctoral College into a more comprehensive, interdisciplinary doctoral programme focused on the broad field of “Entanglements and Conflicts in Afro-Eurasian History”.

Required qualifications: An above-average Master’s degree in Ancient History, Ancient Near Eastern Studies, Classical Archaeology or Modern German Literature; methodological expertise appropriate to the field of study; evidence of an interdisciplinary approach in the master thesis or previous academic work; proficiency in ancient and modern languages relevant to the research focus; very good command of English; strong communication and teamwork skills.

Application requirements: A sample chapter from your master thesis; an outline proposal for a dissertation project on one of the announced research topics; two letters of recommendation.

Visiting Fellowship: Visual Interactions in Early Writing Systems (Cambridge, UK)

The VIEWS Project (Visual Interactions in Early Writing Systems) based at the Faculty of Classics, University of Cambridge invites applications for 2 funded Visiting Fellowships with a deadline of 30th June 2024.

The Fellowship is intended to allow the holder to conduct a key piece of research on a theme related to the project’s main areas of research focus (i.e. visual aspects of writing), although this will be interpreted broadly and there are no restrictions concerning the candidate’s discipline or subject matter. The Fellowship is non-stipendiary, and we envisage that most candidates will be under paid employment or a period of study elsewhere, although this is not a requirement. However, the costs of travel and accommodation are covered.

The VIEWS Visiting Fellowship is intended as an opportunity for an outstanding researcher at any stage of career (with a PhD or with their studies towards one at a sufficiently advanced stage) to develop their research profile. During their stay they will be integrated into the VIEWS project team and will benefit from access to the resources of the Faculty of Classics, University of Cambridge.

The present competition is intended for the 2024-2025 academic year. Although stays outside of term time are possible, it is better for the majority of a fellowship to fall within term as this is when the majority of academic events and meetings take place (i.e. early October to early December, mid January to mid March or late April to late June). Applicants should specify the requested length of stay, which should be between c. 4 and 12 weeks.

The Visiting Fellow will be expected to present a programme of planned research during their time with the VIEWS Project, as well as a plan for dissemination of the research undertaken (dissemination activities may extend beyond the period of the Fellow’s stay in Cambridge). Although this research does not have to be on one of the writing systems (nor situated within the exact chronological periods or geographical areas) studied directly by the VIEWS research team, the applicant should be able to make a persuasive case for the relevance of the writing system(s) studied and/or the disciplinary approach(es) taken.

Applicants for the VIEWS Visiting Fellowship should send the following materials by the deadline of 30th June 2024:

– A statement of proposed research (maximum 750 words). This statement should set out the planned research along with a realistic programme for its completion. It should also comment on the relevance of the proposed research to the VIEWS project, and should make clear the length of time (with suggested approximate dates) of the proposed stay in Cambridge, and where the candidate would be travelling from.
– A curriculum vitae.
– The names of two referees. The applicant should ask their two referees to write to us in support of their application by the above deadline.

All application materials should be sent directly to VIEWS project manager Sarah Lewis at sml75@cam.ac.uk.

Digital Humanities approaches (Helsinki)

Founded in 1640, the University of Helsinki is an international scientific community of 40,000 students and researchers. It operates on four campuses in Helsinki and at 15 other locations. It is one of the leading multidisciplinary research universities in Europe and ranks among the top 100 international universities in the world. The Centre of Excellence in Ancient Near Eastern Empires or ANEE at the University of Helsinki is a cross-disciplinary research centre that focuses on how changing imperial dynamics impact social group identities and lifeways during the first millennium BCE.
With almost 40 current members, ANEE offers a dynamic and stimulating research community on the Ancient Near East, with specialists in Near Eastern and Classical archaeology, Assyriology, ancient history, archaeological sciences, heritage studies, Biblical studies, museum studies, network studies, and language technology. In terms of empires, our researchers cover the Neo-Assyrian, Neo-Babylonian, Persian, Hellenistic, Roman, and Parthian Empires. ANEE engages with methodologically varied yet integrated research on the long-term processes by which social group identities and lifeways were negotiated. Taken together, the innovations of ANEE are the integrated longue durée approach and the methodological innovativeness of each team (both separately and in collaboration).

ANEE invites applications for:

POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER
To carry out a research project based on primary sources and by using Digital Humanities approaches for a fixed term until end of the year 2025, preferably starting on 1 June 2024, but a later date can be negotiated.

The successful candidate’s research projects will focus on the tasks and goals of ANEE’s Team 1 “Digital Humanities Approaches.” As the centre is deeply multidisciplinary, competence in more than one field and/or proof of successful scientific collaboration will be considered an advantage. Their main duties will include full-time research according to their research plan and in collaboration with other ANEE members, presenting their research in international conferences and peer-reviewed journals, and contributing to organizing of ANEE scientific events. Other tasks related to working in a research community, such as teaching or supervising MA or PhD students, are also involved but in a minor role.

Team 1 “Digital Humanities Approaches” develops digital humanities approaches (especially social network analysis and language technology), using these to supplement the more traditional approaches. The team is led by Saana Svärd (saana.svard@helsinki.fi) and the vice-team leader Krister Lindén (Krister.linden@helsinki.fi), and it consists mostly of Assyriologists and computer scientists working in close collaboration. For more information on Team 1 and its members, please click here. For more information on the three teams and the work packages, please visit the ANEE website.

QUALIFICATIONS
We are looking for a researcher with strong expertise in primary sources that shed light on social groups in Mesopotamia or the Levant in the first millennium BCE, particularly in the Neo- and Late Babylonian periods. Applicants with strong expertise in Neo-Assyrian sources will also be considered. Additionally, the chosen candidate should have knowledge of or a strong interest in quantitative methods as applied to lexical semantics (for example, an interest in applying network approaches to the study of lexemes). We are looking in particular for feasible case studies on lexemes relevant to the study of group identities in the Neo-Assyrian Empire and/or Neo-Babylonian Empire and/or later periods (based on the Neo-Babylonian corpus project in Helsinki). As a second research focus we will consider proposals that utilize social network approaches and apply them to Neo-Assyrian era and/or Neo-Babylonian and/or later material. On a general level, the applicant should have a research interest in studying identities and developing new theoretical and methodological approaches in Assyriology. The proposed project needs to contribute in some way to the main research question of ANEE: How do changing empires impact social group identities and lifeways? Excellent collaborative skills are needed.

Preferably, all this expertise and interest should be demonstrated e.g. in the form of peer-reviewed publications, organized events, or theses, but we will consider applications where such an approach is outlined in the research proposal even if the applicant does not yet have completed research results. It is not necessary to have programming skills or to develop completely new approaches.

An appointee to the position of postdoctoral researcher must hold a doctoral degree in a relevant field. The year of graduation and previous postdoctoral experience do not exclude the applicant from consideration. The appointee must have the ability to conduct independent scientific research and possess the teaching skills required for the position. Teaching or teaching-related tasks will form 5-10 % of the position. The candidate should have a proven capability to publish in scientific journals, have excellent analytical and methodological skills, and be able to work both independently and collaboratively as part of a multidisciplinary scientific community. The successful candidates are expected to have excellent skills in written and oral English. Skills in Finnish or Swedish are not required. The candidate is expected to move to Finland for the duration of the post.

WHAT WE OFFER
We are an equal-opportunity employer and offer an attractive and diverse workplace in an inspiring environment with a variety of development opportunities and benefits. ANEE is functioning in the Faculty of Arts (Teams 1 and 3) and in the Faculty of Theology (Team 2), both located in the City Centre Campus in the historic centre of Helsinki.

Finland is a member of the European Union, has high-quality free schooling (also in English), generous family benefits and healthcare, and was recently ranked as the best country in the world for expatriate families. Helsinki also constantly ranks among the world’s top ten most livable cities. Finland and the Helsinki region possess top expertise in sciences in terms of a vibrant talent pool, leading research, strong support services, and functioning collaboration networks. For more information about working at the University of Helsinki and living in Finland, please click here.

The starting salary of the postdoctoral researcher will be EUR 3,720–3,920 per month, depending on the appointee’s qualifications and experience. Furthermore, the University of Helsinki offers comprehensive services to its employees, including occupational health care and health insurance, sports facilities, and opportunities for professional development.

HOW TO APPLY
Applications must be submitted through the University of Helsinki electronic recruitment system by clicking on the link below. The University of Helsinki welcomes applicants of any gender, linguistic or cultural background or minority group. Applications should consist of the following English-language documents:

Motivation letter (max. 1 page) highlighting research accomplishments and including contact information for two referees.

Select publications or theses (PDF files, max. 2) demonstrating expertise relevant for the position

CV (max. 4 pages) and a full list of publications.

A research statement (max. 2000 words) consisting of

i) a brief description of previous relevant experience

ii) a proposal for the research project that the applicant wants to conduct in ANEE (including a rough but feasible timetable for it) fulfilling the needs outlined in “Qualifications” section above

iii) a brief description of any plans for scientific cooperation within ANEE

Professional references or recommendations should not be included. Applicants who are selected for an interview may be asked to provide professional references.

Deadline for applications is 15th April 2024.

Call for Papers: Teaching about the Ancient World in Museums

The editors of Teaching Ancient Egypt in Museums: Pedagogies in Practice (Routledge 2024) seek abstract submissions for the second volume in this series, Teaching about the Ancient World in Museums: Pedagogies in Practice. Teaching with ancient material in museums presents unique challenges for educators, museum staff, and learners alike. Ancient objects are sometimes unprovenanced or are of questionable authenticity, and teaching with them necessitates discussions about provenance. In addition, ancient museum collections often provoke conversations about human remains, for which ethical considerations must be woven into pedagogy. Beyond this, contemporary stakeholder perspectives are often excluded from discussions about their ancient pasts and should be incorporated into collections stewardship and educational programming.

This volume will focus on methods and approaches for teaching about *the ancient Mediterranean, ancient Western Asia, and ancient North Africa* through material remains in museums. In our current moment, when both museums and many ancient studies subfields are reflecting on how to create more inclusive practices grounded in social justice and equity, developing ethical and equitable museum pedagogies to teach from ancient material will help shape more critical views of both ancient and modern cultures among students and museum visitors.

We invite participants to submit abstracts for essays that will share *practical examples of object-based teaching in museums and/or with museum collections.* Submissions can be based in museum collections anywhere in the world. Proposed essays should be geared toward generating conversations about best practices in museum pedagogy, curation, and collection stewardship. They must present case studies that are either in progress or completed, and should foreground contributors’ first-hand experiences, methodologies, and reflective teaching practices. We welcome contributions centered on material from the entirety of the ancient Mediterranean, ancient Western Asia, and ancient North Africa that represent teaching with museum objects in creative and inclusive ways. *Essays should be co- authored by two or more authors,* to reflect the collaborative nature of teaching and learning. These may include essays written in partnership between archaeologists, teachers, curators, docents, museum educators, community workers, artists, and others. An authors’ peer-review workshop will be held on Zoom after the first drafts of the volume’s essays are submitted, so that we can all learn from each other.

Proposed essays should center on object-based, practice-oriented learning experiences with clear goals. They may engage learners in a variety of groups, including children; teachers; university students; incarcerated communities; adult lay learners; artists/art students; informal online audiences, e.g. via social media; and learners who require accessibility accommodations. We are seeking contributions that fall into one of the following categories:'

1. Teaching About Tricky Topics: essays that address teaching about topics considered to be difficult, problematic, or sensitive in museum pedagogy (e.g. teaching about provenance, colonialism, restitution, or with human remains).

2. Teaching Towards Accessibility and Inclusivity: essays that take the term “accessibility” broadly, including pedagogies that serve people who require accessibility accommodations, those that engage underserved and underrepresented communities, and those that represent equitable access to collections information.

3. Teaching Across Disciplines: essays that explore productive connections between material culture and fields outside of the ancient world, and those that reach across cultural boundaries.

4. Teaching in the Community: essays that center on case studies where object- based learning takes place outside of the museum proper, such as in schools, community centers, and online, and those that offer examples of meaningful co- creation with community partners.

The editors especially welcome submissions from colleagues working at institutions located in the MENA, SWANA, and Mediterranean regions. Cross-institutional and/or international collaborations are strongly encouraged. Prospective authors are invited to submit a title and abstract (200-300 words) in English that details their proposed essay topic and pedagogical methods by December 1st using this Google Form: https://forms.gle/FbKD5CAiPRGiBviG7
