dc.description.abstractThe word “culture” is commonly used as either a synonym for “civilization” or in reference to the “shared education” of a specific segment of society, the literate people. In an inspiring book like The Oxford Handbook of Cuneiform Culture (Radner and Robson 2011), it is used in both senses, while the syntagm “cuneiform culture” represents an umbrella term for Sumerian, Assyrian, Babylonian, and so on textual communities (Radner and Robson 2011: xxvii, following Stock 1990: 23 in defining textual communities as “microsocieties organized around the common understanding of a script”). While it would be interesting to discuss the extent to which individuals from different social classes and time periods would have identified and labeled themselves as “Elamite” in Susa and other Elamite areas, in what follows we will be concerned with the second meaning, that is, the one pointing to cuneiform literacy in Elam and especially to literacy in the Elamite language.de
