CALL FOR PAPERS
The University of Chicago, May 4-6, 2012
The MEHAT Conference is celebrating its twenty-seventh year as a leading forum for emerging scholars in Middle East studies. The conference organizing team invites graduate students and faculty in the humanities and social sciences to submit papers. They welcome a broad range of submissions from across the disciplines (including, but not limited to, anthropology, art history, cinema and media studies, history, literature, sociology, and religion) dealing with any topic that has affected the Middle East from the 7th century onwards.
If you wish to participate, please send a 250-word abstract to the conference organizers at mehat2012 (at) gmail (dot) com by February 1, 2012. The organizers will consider both individual papers and prearranged themed panels; the latter is especially encouraged. Please also email them if you have questions. And May is a fantastic time to visit Chicago.
