This volume contains 23 articles written by 26 authors in order to express the extent of their respect and friendship for Christine Kepinski. The topics addressed in their papers reflect the scientific work of Christine Kepinski, who always promoted interdisciplinary approaches and developed multi-scale analysis from the object itself to regional study. Several papers are directly connected to fieldwork she conducted in Iraq and in Turkey: Haradum and the Middle Euphrates area, Tilbeshar and Kunara. Others are devoted to material study, notably glyptic, seals and sealing practices. Others evoke Syria: she never directed archaeological excavation there but she always integrated Syria in her studies. Finally, some are inspired by Christine Kepinski’s interest for urban life. The chronological time span of the book as well as the various specialisations of the authors clearly show the great value of her scientific background guided by her taste for the Orient.
'In total, the 23 written contributions in French or English not only reflect the interests of [Christine Kepinski], but they do justice to her fine work.' - Daniel Bonneterre, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (Histara les comptes rendus (translated from the French), 2017) - read the full review here: http://histara.sorbonne.fr/cr.php?cr=3125
