American Society of Overseas Research (ASOR) Annual Meeting: As part of their work to initiate, encourage, and support research into, and public understanding of, the history and cultures of the Near East and wider Mediterranean world, ASOR holds an annual meeting that includes paper presentations and workshops related to Near Eastern archaeology.
