On Wednesday 28 January, the first ACMES Research Convention will be held. ACMES Associates from a great variety of fields will present (part of) their current research to their colleagues. We cordially invite all those interested in recent developments in research on the Middle East to attend this convention. Apart from ACMES associates and other scholars in our field, we also extend a warm welcome to students, policy makers and the interested public.
During the convention, ACMES Associates will present their research in thematic panels consisting of three or four papers. These panels, organised in three parallel sessions, will address topics varying from life in modern Middle Eastern cities to premodern linguistics, and from the Arab uprisings to Islamic art, and so on. This will offer all ACMES associates an excellent opportunity to discuss paper topics in an interdisciplinary setting, share ideas, and to become more familiar with their colleagues' research. In addition, the programme will include a keynote lecture by Michiel Leezenberg and the day's programme will be concluded with a drinks reception. You can find a new version of the full programme here:
The convention will take place the University Library and is a full-day event.
UPDATE: Since the amount of registrations has exceeded the number of guests the University Library can accommodate, we can no longer accept any new registrants. We offer our sincere apologies for any disappointment.
