Paper proposals are now being accepted for a multi-disciplinary academic conference to be held on the New Cairo campus of The American University in Cairo next Fall.  The conference will examine, analyze and evaluate the state of Iraq and Iraqi studies at the contemporary historical moment.  Participants should present scholarly research on current conditions within and around the academic study of Iraq, focusing on areas as diverse as political science, economics, history, sociology, anthropology, education, film/media/communications and cultural studies, and lending particular attention to issues of critical concern, both social and disciplinary, which have developed in the wake of the most recent foreign interventions into, and bombing campaigns against, Iraq, while also fostering a broad appreciation of aspects of Iraqi history and culture whose legacy long predates the devastating upheaval and violence of the past twenty years.

Please e-mail 250-word proposals plus brief bibliography and biographical statement by August 1 to:

Professor Jacqueline Ismael
Conference Program Committee Chair
University of Calgary


Professor Terri Ginsberg
Conference Organizing Committee Chair
