ANE 2: A DISCUSSION LIST FOR THE STUDY OF THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST
A successor to the Ancient Near East Discussion List originally hosted by the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago.
ANE 2 is a moderated academic discussion list that focuses on topics and issues of interest in Ancient Near Eastern Studies, from the Indus to the Nile, and from the beginnings of human habitation to the rise of Islam. It is intended to provide a forum for the exhange of ideas on these topics between and among scholars and students actively engaged in research and study of the Ancient Near East.
Active (on-list) participation in ANE 2 assumes an informed knowledge of the ancient Near East and adherence to List Protocols (which are available at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ANE-2/files/ANE%202%20Protocols and are sent to each new subscriber upon approval of subscription application).
The act of subscribing to the list signifies the agreement of the subscriber to follow these protocols and to accept the adjudications of the Moderators.
ANE 2 is international in scope. Listmembers should expect to be able to read postings in English, French and German. Participants are free to post in any of these languages, and, upon occasion, in other languages used in the study of the Ancient Near East.
