Call for Papers: Near Eastern Studies Graduate Student Conference, UC Berkeley (13-14 Mar | UC Berkeley)

November 15, 2019

The Near Eastern Studies graduate students at UC Berkeley would like to invite the graduate students in your department to participate in the 2020 UC Berkeley Near Eastern Studies Graduate Student Conference.

The conference will take place on March 13–14, 2020 on the UC Berkeley campus, consisting of two days of thematically-organized panel sessions. Faculty will serve as the respondents for each of the panels.

Applicants should submit an abstract of no more than 250 words by November 15th, 2019. Please fill out the abstract submission form on our website. Paper presentations should be approximately 20 minutes in length, which will be followed by a short, discussant-led question and answer session.

As an interdisciplinary department, we will accept submissions from any sub-discipline of Near Eastern Studies, including, but not limited to: history, archaeology, anthropology, linguistics, religion, literature, art/art history, and/or architecture.

Please note, however, that the topic of any submitted paper must, then, be relevant to any of the cultures which have inhabited the broader Near East from the Neolithic to the Present, from Morocco and al-Andalus in the West to Central Asia in the East, and from Ethiopia in the South, to the Caucasus in the North.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any additional questions. For more information about registration, travel, and accommodation, please visit our website. Questions about the conference should be directed to [email protected].
