At IAS, Regine Pruzsinszky will be examining the sociocultural ­position(s) of singers in the ancient Near East, and conducting an in­-depth investigation of their organization and tasks and their relationship to political and religious power based on cuneiform documents from the third to the first millennium B.C.E. One key issue is the singers’ controversial role in the transmission of literary texts.
