My research paper will investigate further the relationship between various Near Eastern landscapes and the peoples who inhabited them. I intend to look at both the development of settlement patterns and visually represented landscapes, such as the Assyrian rock reliefs, in order to come to some conclusion about landscape perception in different periods of the Near Eastern past. This approach will ideally enable me to consider some of the broad theories of whether and how the body is an integral component of shaping individual and cultural experience, such as phenomology, structuration theory, etc.
