Working in the field of archaeology, architectural history and material culture of the ancient Near East, Ömür Harmanşah's academic interests are increasingly focused on the intersections of architectural space, bodily performance and collective memory. He is particularly influenced by the developing fields of material culture studies, anthropological theories of art, technology and agency, ethnographies of space, place and landscape, and phenomenological approaches to spatiality.

Cities and the Shaping of Memory in the Ancient Near East


Cambridge University Press

Hardback ISBN:9781107027947
51 b/w illus. 9 maps
Published on 18 March 2013

This book investigates the founding and building of cities in the ancient Near East. The creation of new cities was imagined as an ideological project or a divine intervention in the political narratives and mythologies of Near Eastern cultures, often masking the complex processes behind the social production of urban space. During the Early Iron Age (ca. 1200–850 BCE), Assyrian and Syro-Hittite rulers developed a highly performative official discourse that revolved around constructing cities, cultivating landscapes, building watercourses, erecting monuments, and initiating public festivals. This volume combs through archaeological, epigraphic, visual, architectural, and environmental evidence to tell the story of a region from the perspective of its spatial practices, landscape history, and architectural technologies. It argues that the cultural processes of the making of urban spaces shape collective memory and identity as well as sites of political performance and state spectacle.Google Books Preview
