Apparently it’s proofs season here, since I’ve been busy reading a lot of my own writing lately, looking for errors that should long since have been corrected (by me). The good news is that all of these things will actually be published soon. They include:

Archaeology of Empire in Achaemenid Egypt. Edinburgh Studies in Ancient Persia. Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 2020. (This should be available in November 2019; download the discount flyer here.)

“The Canon of Ancient Iranian Art: From Grand Narratives to Local Perspectives.” In Amy Rebecca Gansell and Ann Shafer (ed.), Testing the Canon of Ancient Near Eastern Art and Archaeology. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2020. (This should be available in November or December 2019. It looks like my title was changed; probably I agreed to it and don’t remember. I wrote this paper back in 2015, and it was instrumental in getting me my current job. I’m really happy to see it in print finally.)

“An Urartian Belt in the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Origin of the Parthian Shot.” Getty Research Journal 12 (2020). (Co-authored with Alexis M. Belis; this will be published in the spring of 2020. It publishes a belt in the Getty villa and explores the history of the Parthian shot motif, including an argument that it originated in Urartu. This was a fun article to write.)
