W2: Mesopotamian Incantation Literature

Organizers: Frank Simons (Birmingham University) and Elyze Zomer (Universität Leipzig)

The main goal of this workshop is to provide an overview of recent research on Mesopotamian Incantation Literature from the third to the first millennium B.C.E. in all cuneiform languages, though chiefly focused on the Sumerian and Akkadian traditions. In addition, the present workshop will offer new perspectives on both individual incantations and whole series, as well as new connections between various incantations.
