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.
