Ancient history, Sumerian and Babylonian civilization and religion, women in Ancient Near Eastern religion
Author of two books and numerous articles and reviews, Dr. Sharlach's work has covered a range of topics based on cuneiform tablets in the Sumerian language dating from about 2050 B.C. from southern Iraq. Starting with work on taxation (Provincial Taxation and the Ur III State, published by Brill in 2004) and touching on matters such as calendars and diplomacy, Dr. Sharlach's more recent publications have focused on the roles of women in the religion at the royal court. An Ox of One's Own: Royal Wives and Religion at the Court of the Third Dynasty of Ur appeared in summer 2017. Her next project is tentatively entitled Death and Taxes in Early Mesopotamia.
