4th
Neo-Babylonian Network (NBN) Meeting

On the 30th of May
2016 the 4th Neo-Babylonian Network (NBN) Meeting has been organised by
Kathleen Abraham and Melanie Groß at the Katholieke Universiteit (KU) Leuven. In
the past years these annual meetings have been hosted by the University of
Vienna, Leiden University and Pantheon-Sorbonne University in order to provide
PhD-students in the Neo-Babylonian field with the opportunity to present and
discuss their on-going doctoral research with well-advanced scholars (on the
basis of individual responses). This year’s meeting brought together
Neo-Babylonian students and scholars from KU Leuven, VU University Amsterdam,
Leiden University, Pantheon-Sorbonne University and the University of Vienna. In
addition to a session about current PhD research, major projects established at
these same universities, including the NaBuCCo project (presented by Kathleen
Abraham, Stefania Ermidoro and Melanie Groß), have been introduced in order to
encourage scientific exchange on an international level. These meetings of an
international network of Neo-Babylonian scholars and students will be continued
in the upcoming years.
