Title: Archaeologies of the Near East
Description: In this course we will explore the archaeological history and current archaeological practice in the Middle East, in connection with Western colonialism, the formation of nation states and ongoing military conflicts. The social and cultural history of the Near East from prehistory to the end of Iron age (300 BC) will be covered as well. Studying the material remains of the ancient past is never entirely about discovering and recovering ancient societies from the deep corners of antiquity: it is more about our modern concerns of self-definition, cultural identity, ideals and ideologies of the present. Throughout the semester therefore, we will also investigate some of interpretive approaches and concepts used within Near Eastern archaeology. The main goal of the course is to develop a critical understanding of ancient societies and their material culture from an interdisciplinary, post-colonial perspective.
