  • 5.-6. März 2010: Slaves and Households in the Near East. Symposium Organized by Laura Culbertson. The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, 1155 East 58th Street, Chicago, IL 60637.

    Scholars have long recognized that slavery was a reality - even a "rule" - of ancient societies. Yet, since the ever-influential philosophical treatises on ancient economies (e.g., Marx, Weber), many studies of ancient Near Eastern slavery have tended to focus on the economic functions and legal terminology of slaves, and, even though such contributions are indispensable, there have been but few comparative studies of pre-modern slaveries that also investigate the socio-political and cultural contexts of slaves and their relationships to the non-slave populations around them. A common framework for studying slavery has been elusive in general in Near Eastern studies, no doubt owing to the differential nature of sources and societies across time and space as well as to the various research trajectories that have dominated inquiry. Thus, at present, the phenomenon of slavery is an ubiquitous yet elusive topic in Near Eastern scholarship.

    The goal of this symposium is to seek new, more inclusive discourses on Near Eastern slaveries and move towards a more unified conceptual framework. In order to accomplish this, contributions employ the concept of "household", the most common context of slaves, as an analytical fulcrum. The household, whether a domestic unit or state institution, is a promising focal point for a comparative investigation since it is the site at which slavery is articulated and marked, where slaves status is created and transformed, and where boundaries between slaves and non-slaves are negotiated, revised, or transcended. Economic and legal factors are and cannot be excised from discussion in favor of other approaches, but, as economies and legal orders can vary as widely as slave systems, these are addressed as appropriate to the contexts in question.

    Many calls for new approaches to slavery have been advanced, and studies now seek to include socio-political and cultural approaches to slavery in addition to economic and quantitative analyses. These offer a launching point from which to develop inquiries about slave systems in the Near East specifically. At present, many Near Eastern subfields have reached optimal point for this venture, having been aided by several decades of theoretical revision on the issue of slavery and by a number of recently published monographs and case studies (cited throughout) that are developing illuminating new paradigms and methodologies. The papers in this symposium address new and old approaches to slavery, engaging a variety of sources in order to further these endeavors. Four major overlapping themes intersect in the papers and provide common bases for discussion: (1) slaves and the family, (2) slaves and the state household, (3) the phases of enslavement, and (4) marking slavery.
