The editors of Avar: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Life and Society in the Ancient Near East sound an open call for submissions for Avar 1.2.


Avar 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 submissions in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. Submissions may take the form of short notes (2,000-4,000 words) and articles (6,000-12,000 words). Word counts include notes and references. 


Contributors must submit their manuscripts via the online submission platform after registering.
