Research Project

Law and Custom: Gender Relations in the Ancient Near East
The aim of my project is to examine how gender relations were regulated in the ancient Near East, from a legal point of view. More specifically, I explore the intersection between official laws and extra-juridical texts, in order to establish whether social customs of everyday life pertaining to gender relations indeed corresponded to what formal laws decreed.
