!!Classics and oriental studies
The section __Classics and Oriental Studies__ covers two in themselves multidisciplinary areas with some overlap as far as the Near East is concerned.
\\ \\
__Classics__ covers all the domains of the Graeco-Roman world that are listed in the annual international bibliography (''Année philologique'') from prehistoric times until the Middle Ages, as well as the study of its ''Nachleben'' beyond these periods. The disciplines involved are archaeology, art history, history, law, linguistics, literary studies, philosophy, and theology, as well as the so-called auxiliary disciplines of epigraphy, numismatics, and papyrology.  Some members of the AE working in one of these fields belong to one of the other disciplinary sections.
\\ \\
__Oriental Studies__ covers a similar range of disciplines, including sociology and politology, which are applied to all periods and all civilisations of Asia and part of Africa. Here, too, some members of AE working in these fields belong to one of the other disciplinary sections.
