HEKHAL has just posted (on the Conference 2013 page) a link to download all abstracts and the schedule of sessions, as well as an interactive map of the conference location and other useful places.
HEKHAL is currently preparing the proceedings of its first annual conference for publication. We will be publishing our conference proceedings annually.
HEKHAL was created by a like-minded group whose combined academic interests lie in the area of Ancient Near Eastern history and historiography, biblical studies, and archaeology. Hekhal was designed with the long-term aim of increasing both academic and public understanding of the world and texts of the Ancient Near East.
HEKHAL aims to do this through the organisation of events including conferences, seminars, lectures, workshops, web resources and the publication of annual conference proceedings. Although we are “The Irish Society for the Study of the Ancient Near East”, we are by no means restricting our membership or participation in the society to those residing in Ireland. If you’re out there and interested, you’re more than welcome to join us and participate in all events.
All upcoming events will be announced on this website.
