Title: Architecture, Body, and Performance in the Ancient Near East
Description: This graduate seminar investigates the relationship between bodily practices, social performances, and production of space. Contemporary discourses on body and performance in cultural studies have flourished drastically in the last two decades and continue to offer new avenues of research in the social sciences and the humanities. In this seminar, our goal is, on the one hand, to explore these new theoretical writings on embodiment, agency, subjectivity, bodily practices, social performances, spectacles, materiality and spatiality of body. On the other hand, we will review recent archaeological work, historical and literary sources from the ancient Near East, and consider their scholarly interpretations influenced by contemporary discourses.
