This volume contains 33 papers presented at the 42th Rencontre Assyriologique Internationale held at the University of Leuven in July 1995. The main purpose of the conference on Languages and Cultures in Contact was to focus on contacts and exchanges between the various cultures in the Syro-Mesopotamian realm by re-evaluating the geographical limits of 'Mesopotamian' civilization to include the Upper- and Middle-Euphrates regions of Syria. These proceedings cover areas of research in the fields of philology, archaeology and history alike. They bring together essays on a great number of topics, including comparative linguistics, the spread of literacy and administrative practices, cultural exchanges, diffusion and acculturation. Finally the book contains reports on current excavations and surveys in the Ancient Near East.

Synopsis:

Assyriology is a scientific field which cannot be isolated from the evolution of modern society with its technological innovations - it is a subject which is central to the understanding of how civilisation arose in the Near East, and subsequently spread to the Mediterranean and beyond. Languages and Cultures in Context: At The Crossroads of Civilisations in the Syro-Mesopotamian Realm deals with the subject of contacts and exchanges between the various cultures of the Ancient Near East, and important field of archaeology, history and philology. Recent discoveries have forced scholars to re-evaluate the geographic limits of 'Mesopotamian' civilisation to include the Upper and Middle Euphrates regions of Syria. This has lead to a re-evaluation of the spread of literacy, comparative linguistics, administrative practices, cultural exchanges, diffusion and acculturation in the area. Each article in Languages and Cultures in Context: At The Crossroads of Civilisations in the Syro-Mesopotamian Realm is followed by its own bibliography
