World Congress for Middle Eastern Studies (WOCMES)
The World Congress seeks to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in Middle Eastern Studies in its broadest sense. The invitation is aimed at scholars, researchers, educators, students, professionals and other groups interested in studies on North Africa, Middle East, Muslim states of Central Asia as well as other regions of the world which are directly or indirectly affected by affairs in these areas.
Barcelona will undoubtedly be an exciting setting to meet and discuss Middle Eastern Studies. Spain historically has a profound interest in the Mediterranean and the Arab-Islamic world for obvious reasons, such as geographical and historical proximity. Within this context, Catalonia and particularly Barcelona stand out as benchmarks of research and dissemination of information on the Mediterranean and the Middle East
Paper submission deadline: 15 December 2009. More information: http://wocmes.iemed.org/en/congress
