    The Sixth Annual University of Chicago Oriental Institute Seminar Slaves and Households in the Near East Organized by Laura Culbertson Slavery is a reality

      The Sixth Annual University of Chicago Oriental Institute Seminar

      "Slaves and Households in the Near East"
      Organized by Laura Culbertson

      Slavery is a reality of history that has been attested since the earliest cuneiform documents from ancient Mesopotamia. This seminar engages new approaches to the study of slaves in the Near East and seeks to open new conversations about this ubiquitous yet complicated topic. By considering the relationships between slaves and households — whether defined as domestic units, state institutions, or temples — the presenters explore the cultural and sociopolitical contexts of slaves, in addition to economic and legal aspects, and offer insights into the dynamics between slaves and the non-slave populations around them. Utilizing a range of data and theoretical approaches, the presenters cover material from the earliest states of Mesopotamia to the Abbasid, Safavid, and Ottoman empires.
