Syrians for Heritage (SIMAT)

Syrians for Heritage (SIMAT) 

سوريون من أجل التراث (سمات)

Syrians for Heritage (SIMAT) is a cultural association that strives to preserve the Syrian heritage for all Syrians and for the world. Through our tangible and intangible heritage, we can comprehend our past and anticipate our future. This understanding will help us rediscover our plurality, restore our sense of belonging to our land and country, and achieve our hoped-for, peaceful future.
SIMAT is an inclusive association. It insists on broadening the discourse on Syrian heritage to encompass diverse perspectives, including those that have historically been excluded for a variety of reasons. SIMAT engages civil society in Syria and the Syrian diaspora and collaborates with concerned international organizations in the service of heritage education, exhibition, and conservation. SIMAT aims to challenge intended and unintended infringements on and appropriation of Syrian art, culture, and architecture, and promotes the study and appreciation of Syrian heritage locally and internationally for all.

Heritage for Peace: Damage Newsletter
Heritage for Peace is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support all Syrians in their efforts to protect and safeguard Syria’s cultural heritage during the armed conflict.
As an international group of heritage workers we believe that cultural heritage, and the protection thereof, can be used as a common ground for dialogue and therefore as a tool to enhance peace. We call on all Syrians of any religion or ethnicity to enter into a dialogue and work together to safeguard their mutual heritage.

    The present volume is the first of the publication series of the Saudi-German archaeological project and focuses on three fundamental aspects of research at Taymāʾ: the current archaeological exploration of the oasis is contextualised with previous and ongoing research within the region, while at the same time offering a first overview of the settlement history of the site, which may have started as early as more than 6000 years ago. New information on the palaeoenvironment has been provided by multiproxy-analysis of sediments from a palaeolake immediately north of the settlement. The results indicate an Early Holocene humid period in the region that is shorter than the so-called African Humid Period. The abrupt aridification at around 8 ka BP, known from other regions in the Near East, is also attested in north-western Arabia. The reconstruction of the past vegetation of the site and its surroundings demonstrates that oasis cultivation at Taymāʾ started during the 5th millennium BCE with grapes and figs, rather than with the date palm. According to hydrological investigations on water resources, groundwater aquifers provided the main source of local water supply. These were exploited through wells, some of which have been identified in the area of the ancient oasis. Finally, since the time of early travellers to Northwest Arabia evidence of cultural contacts has been observed in the records from the site, which had been occupied by the last Babylonian king, Nabonidus (556–539 BCE) for ten years. A historical-archaeological essay on Egypt and Arabia as well as a study on the ambiguous relationship between Assyria and Arabia – characterised by conflict and commerce – shed new light on the foreign relations of ancient Taymāʾ.

    Faience Material from the Samos Heraion Excavations

    Faience Material from the Samos Heraion Excavations
    Cover for Faience Material from the Samos Heraion Excavations


    Virginia Webb


    The Heraion on Samos has been known since excavations began in the early nineteen hundreds as the findplace of exotic and unusual objects for the goddess Hera, brought from regions outside Greek lands, both East and West, dedicated in the sanctuary and finally buried in deposits of ex-votos. This long awaited study of the objects made of faience complements previous major studies in the Samos series on Cypriot limestones and terracottas (Schmidt) and Egyptian and Near Eastern bronzes (Jantzen) to which we should add Near Eastern and Egyptian ivories (Freyer-Schauenburg) published by the University of Hamburg.

    Faience is a colourful and attractive material used for both perfume vessels, figurines, and amulets, but its manufacture is alien to Archaic Greece. Thus it forms part of the interchange of imported technologies and styles which characterises the Orientalising movement in Greece, and it illuminates new routes of contact between Greece and the old world of Egypt and the Near East. Faience objects of unmistakable Egyptian origin come from the Heraion (though they are in the minority). But the greatest number are those which belong to the first two phases of the faience industry, established in East Greece in the second half of the seventh century: in particular they include a large body of figurines which clearly reference foreign cult. The strongest influence on these faience objects comes from the Egyptian sphere, although the exact path this took is still unclear, and other probably Near Eastern influences are also detectable. Samos has already yielded a large number of high quality Egyptian bronzes of XXV/XXVIth Dynasty date, which are the subject of much discussion as to their purpose and dedication. Virginia Webb has an unrivalled knowledge of the

    faience objects and their context in the East Greek and Egyptian worlds and this book promises to expand our knowledge of this important but up to now little known aspect of the foreign dedications in the Heraion.

    Open Access Journal: Revista del Instituto de Historia Antigua Oriental "Dr. Abraham Rosenvasser"

    Revista del Instituto de Historia Antigua Oriental "Dr. Abraham Rosenvasser"
    ISSN: 0325-1209

    El presente número de RIHAO aparece luego de un considerable tiempo desde la publi- cación del número anterior, situación que ha hecho necesario relanzar la revista bajo una nueva serie. El nuevo equipo de trabajo de la revista apunta, pues, en lo inmediato, a subsanar los graves problemas de periodicidad que la misma ha experimentado así como, fundamentalmente, a volver a poner al servicio de los investigadores de la historia antigua del Cercano Oriente de nuestro país la publicación o cial del Instituto dedicado a dicha especialidad en la Universidad de Buenos Aires. Más allá de las coyunturas económicas y los contextos institucionales que sin dudas afectan a toda producción académica, lograr la periodicidad de una publicación cientí ca –así lo creemos– expresa un compromiso serio con la necesidad de difusión de una especialidad. Pero, también hacen al carácter cientí co y académico de una publicación el mantenimiento de una actitud profesional junto con una variedad de aproximaciones inquisitivas y temáticas, así como la no menos necesaria contribución de especialistas del exterior. En ese senti- do, la revista se encuentra abierta a recibir contribuciones nacionales e internacionales que aborden todas las temáticas y especialidades del campo antiguo-oriental, desde miradas propias de la egiptología, la asiriología, la hititología, la iranología y los estu- dios bíblicos tradicionales, ancladas principalmente –aunque no exclusivamente– en aspectos lológicos y arqueológicos, hasta intervenciones derivadas intrínsecamente de los cambios y rupturas observados en las ciencias sociales y humanas desde los años ’60 del siglo pasado. Con este espíritu amplio e integrador, aunque sin soslayar en abso- luto el compromiso con la calidad disciplinar, reanudamos la publicación de RIHAO.

    Los artículos enviados para consideración que no cumplan con las normas abajo especificadas serán devueltos al remitente.

    Constructing monuments, perceiving monumentality and the economics of building: Theoretical and methodological approaches to the built environment

    Constructing monuments, perceiving monumentality and the economics of building: Theoretical and methodological approaches to the built environment

    Edited by Ann Brysbaert, Victor Klinkenberg, Anna Gutiérrez Garcia-M., Irene Vikatou | 2018

    ISBN: 9789088906961

    In many societies monuments are associated with dynamic socio-economic and political processes that these societies underwent and/or instrumentalised. Due to the often large human and other resources input involved in their construction and maintenance, such constructions form an useful research target in order to investigate both their associated societies as well as the underlying processes that generated differential construction levels. Monumental constructions may physically remain the same for some time but certainly not forever. The actual meaning, too, that people associate with these may change regularly due to changing contexts in which people perceived, assessed, and interacted with such constructions.
    These changes of meaning may occur diachronically, geographically but also socially. Realising that such shifts may occur forces us to rethink the meaning and the roles that past technologies may play in constructing, consuming and perceiving something monumental. In fact, it is through investigating the processes, the practices of building and crafting, and selecting the specific locales in which these activities took place, that we can argue convincingly that meaning may already become formulated while the form itself is still being created. As such, meaning-making and -giving may also influence the shaping of the monument in each of its facets: spatially, materially, technologically, socially and diachronically.
    This volume varies widely in regional and chronological focus and forms a useful manual to studying both the acts of building and the constructions themselves across cultural contexts. A range of theoretical and practical methods are discussed, and papers illustrate that these are applicable to both small or large architectural expressions, making it useful for scholars investigating urban, architectural, landscape and human resources in archaeological and historical contexts. The ultimate goal of this book is to place architectural studies, in which people’s interactions with each other and material resources are key, at the crossing of both landscape studies and material culture studies, where it belongs.

    Open Access Journal: Mizan: Journal for the Study of Muslim Societies and Civilizations

    Mizan: Journal for the Study of Muslim Societies and Civilizations
    E-ISSN: 2472-5919
    Mizan is a digital initiative dedicated to encouraging informed public discourse and interdisciplinary scholarship on the culture and history of Muslim societies. We provide a platform for exploring and engaging with important topics pertaining to Muslim societies past and present.

    Our Vision

    Mizan is dedicated to fostering public scholarship and supporting and promoting research on Muslim societies across the world. We bring a fair, unbiased perspective to bear on current events and contemporary debates concerning all aspects of Islamic history, religion, and culture. We seek to encourage and contribute to informed public discourse by providing academic resources and accessible commentary on subjects of contemporary relevance and abiding significance.
    The Mizan initiative is distinguished by the broad-ranging interdisciplinary approaches we foster; the scholarly expertise we bring to commentary on current events and the study of the Islamic world; and the breadth of cultural expressions from Muslim societies we investigate, commemorate, and celebrate. We seek to make research into the background to Islam’s emergence as a global civilization and the history, texts, and classic cultural expressions of Muslim identity relevant for a contemporary audience. Features and articles on Mizan bridge past and present, drawing classical literature, visual culture, law, and devotional forms into conversation with the popular culture of modern Muslim societies.
    We seek to approach the history and culture of Muslim societies in an unbiased way, without preference for any sectarian perspective, and to avoid essentialism and the privileging of any particular orthodoxy or orthopraxy. We seek to promote an appreciation for transregional and cosmopolitan perspectives and promote pluralism and open dialogue. By fostering objective, responsible, balanced discussion and scholarly inquiry, we seek to contribute to improving online discourse about Muslim societies and culture.
    The results of our inquiry are published under a Creative Commons license, as we believe that making the results of scholarly research and discussion openly available to educators, researchers, the media, and the general public is the best way for us to maximize our impact on scholarship and public discourse.
