About the Journal

Avar: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Life and Society in the Ancient Near East is a bi-annual open-access journal dedicated to publishing peer-reviewed scholarship on Anatolia, Egypt, the Levant, and Mesopotamia in the second and first millennia BCE that crosses and disrupts disciplinary boundaries. 

Submissions should explicitly seek to adopt, adapt, or integrate theories and methodologies from within the traditional fields of ancient studies (i.e. archaeology, Assyriology, biblical studies, Egyptology, Hittitology, etc.), as well as from socio-anthropological and scientific disciplines. 

Avar accepts traditional length articles and short notes in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.

ISSN: 2752-3527 (Print) ISSN: 2752-3535 (Online) | Avar is published twice a year in June and December.
