67th Rencontre Assyriologique Internationale

Eating and Drinking in the Ancient Near East

Turin, July 12-16 2021

Dear colleagues,
welcome to the website of the 67th Rencontre Assyriologique Internationale, the annual conference of the International Association for Assyriology (IAA), that will be hosted by the University of Turin from July 12 to July 16, 2021.
The conference's main theme is "Eating and Drinking in the Ancient Near East".

Unfortunately, the unforesseable developments of the COVID 19 pandemic do not allow us to organize a traditional conference. We regret that we cannot welcome you in person in Turin, but we hope nonetheless that many of you will decide to contribute to the first RAI that will take place on a virtual platform: we will do our best to make it an enjoyable event!

The organizing commitee
Stefano de Martino, Elena Devecchi, Christian Greco, Carlo Lippolis, Vito Messina, Maurizio Viano
