CFP: Fifth World Congress for Middle Eastern Studies (WOCMES)

February 27, 2018 - February 28, 2018

WOCMES Seville 2018 will be held in the capital of Andalusia on 16-22 July 2018, serving as a meeting point to present, debate and share a wide range of information on the latest studies concerning the Middle East, encompassing diverse perspectives, from conflict analysis and resolution to migrations, water, the environment, culture, news media and studies on Al-Andalus.

The World Congress for Middle Eastern Studies (WOCMES) is the biggest encounter of world experts on disciplines related to this vast region whether contemporary or ancient. The Congress takes place every four years in a different capital. The fifth edition will be organised by the Three Cultures of the Mediterranean Foundation in collaboration with the University of Seville whose headquarters will serve as the main venue for the event.

In the wake of the four previous congresses – Mainz 2002 (Germany), Amman 2006 (Jordan), Barcelona 2010 (Spain) and Ankara 2014 (Turkey), WOCMES Seville 2018 will focus on the relationship between the three cultures and, given that it is the Foundation’s raison d’être, the Andalusí legacy and the roots of the city that will host this major international gathering.

The Three Cultures of the Mediterranean Foundation calls for submissions for the fifth edition of the World Congress for Middle Eastern Studies (WOCMES) which will be held in Seville, Spain, from July 16th to the 22nd, 2018.

All submissions of proposals must be made through the Wocmes Seville 2018 website at http://wocmes2018seville.org/
