From the New Editors:
Damqātum is an electronic publication, freely available since 2006 both in
English and in Spanish.
Even though it is an institutional newsletter, as incoming editors we
intend to broaden the scope of published material. For this reason we have
decided to implement several editorial changes in content and layout,
seeking to maintain the high scholarly standard set in the previous
volumes. These improvements were thought to:
1. Create and reinforce scholarly connections between local universities
and foreign institutions related to Ancient Near Eastern Studies.
2. Increase the diffusion of scholarly meetings and research carried out in
Argentina and Latin America.
3. Facilitate the access to a large range of information (articles,
research projects, conferences, courses, new insights and discoveries) in a
bilingual format, to reach an even wider readership.
Therefore, we encourage the scholarly audience to get in touch with us and
send individual or multi-author contributions.
