Negotiating the Empire beyond the Temples: the diversity of political power

In the mid-sixth century BCE, the Persians created an empire that was unparallelled in size and duration—something that could not have been achieved without the recruitment of local power groups into the imperial project. Traditionally, temples and priests have been imagined as prime venues and interlocutors of the power negotiations between conqueror and conquered. The Cyrus Cylinder, to name just one example, is usually seen as a product of the priesthood of Marduk, keen on legitimizing the new regime. However, this focus on temples and priesthoods is, at least partly, determined by the fact that much of the textual archive from Persia’s conquered regions, including Yehud, Babylonia, and Egypt, was produced in and by these institutions.

In this session, we want to invite participants to consider evidence for the societal diversity of power negotiations, both at the inception of the empire and during its long, two-century existence. Can we identify some of this diversity (e.g. the military, mid- and low-level bureaucrats, tribes, merchants) and come to a more nuanced understanding of the limitations that existed both on the power of the Persian state and that of temples and priests?

Alexander the Great and Egypt: History, Art, Tradition
Université de Wroclaw, Pologne
18-19 Novembre 2011

This is a workshop organized by Krzysztof Nawotka (University of Wroclaw, Poland), Volker Grieb (Helmut Schmidt University Hamburg, Germany) with Agnieszka Wojciechowska (University of Wroclaw, Poland) as the organizing committee secretary. The aim of this workshop is to examine both the Macedonian conquest of Egypt, its consequences and its reflection in literature and art. An area of particular importance is attitudes of the local population to Alexander. The organizing committee looks forward in particular to contributions making use of both classical and Egyptian sources and to those uniting multidisciplinary approach to the sources material and research questions.

We invite papers suitable for delivery in 20-30 minutes. Please send abstracts of 300 words or less as an attachment to Agnieszka Wojciechowska (agnieszka.w4@gmail.com <mailto:agnieszka.w4@gmail.com>) by 30 May 2011. The publication of a volume containing a selection of revised conference papers is being planned.
