CALL FOR PAPERS
4th ANNUAL MIDDLE EASTERN STUDIES SYMPOSIUM
“History & Movement: Transition in the Middle East”
Lewis & Clark College
You are invited to submit proposals for presentation at Lewis & Clark’s 4th annual Middle Eastern Studies Symposium, February 19-21, 2018.
The Middle Eastern Studies Symposium is a project of the Middle Eastern Studies Initiative at Lewis & Clark. This student-led event is designed to showcase student research and local resources in the field to supplement academic opportunities on campus. The symposium and the initiative have been successful in implementing the MENA minor and we hope through the symposium to continue gathering interest in the area.
We are accepting proposals for individual research papers (15-20 minute presentations), hands-on workshops, roundtable discussions, readings and/or exhibitions preferably related to the theme of transition in the Middle East, but we also welcome all submissions. We welcome submission of any and all presentations pertaining to the MENA region, geographically inclusive of North Africa, Turkey and the Levant, and the Arabian Peninsula. We also will accept research in Southwest Asia (Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan). Topics may include, but are certainly not limited to:
