GALATEO (Good Attitudes for Life in Assyrian Times: Etiquette and Observance of Norms in Male and Female Groups)

Project description

Manners as a means of understanding etiquette

Etiquette rules and customs vary throughout the world and over the years. The manners of any given culture can contribute to the understanding of etiquette, from the ancient to the modern world. In this context, the EU-funded GALATEO project will study etiquette in late Assyrian society (10th to 7th centuries BCE). It will research how correct behaviour in Assyrian society was codified and imposed during meetings in various settings. It will shed light on how etiquette can become a means for both men and women to display their social status. The findings will help deepen our understanding of the social history of a number of cultures of the ancient Middle East in light of etiquette.
