  Elam - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Elam was centered in the far west and southwest of modern day Iran (in the Ilam Province and the lowlands of Khuzestan).
There appear to have been alliances of Elam and Babylonia against the Assyrians; the Babylonian king Mar-biti-apla-ushur (984—79) was of Elamite origin, and Elamites are recorded to have fought with the Babylonian king Marduk-balassu-iqbi against the Assyrian forces under Shamshi-Adad V (823–11).
Among the nations that benefited from the decline of the Assyrians were the Persians, whose presence around Lake Urmia to the north of Elam is attested from the 9th century BC in Assyrian texts.

 Diane Elam
Elam not only critiques the discourse she is analysing; she also takes to task both the limitations and the possibilities of the language she herself uses.
Elam argues that, "women are both determined and are yet to be determined." (Feminism and Deconstruction) She explains this contingency by recasting the term mise en abyme, a form of endless deferral, to include a feminist understanding, which she terms the "ms.
