ASMEA Sets April 30 Deadline for Papers and Panels

The Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa (ASMEA) has set Wednesday, April 30, as the deadline for submission of papers and panel ideas for its seventh annual conference, scheduled to take place October 30 and November 1, 2014, in Arlington, Virginia.

In an email to members, conference planners said:
ASMEA is currently seeking proposals for paper and panel presentations for the Seventh Annual Conference. Members from any discipline, tenured or untenured faculty, or those otherwise affiliated with a recognized research institution, may submit proposals to present at the Conference. Unique proposals from senior graduate students (ABD) will also be considered. Proposals on topics related to the Middle East and Africa should consist of a one-page outline of new and unpublished research. A recent C.V. with all contact data also must be included with name, e-mail, phone number, and affiliation.
The email noted separate links for panel proposals and a call for papers.

In addition to sponsoring its annual conference, ASMEA publishes the Journal of the Middle East and Africa and books, such as Political Islam from Muhammad to Ahmadinejad: Defenders, Detractors, and Definitions by Joseph Morrison Skelly.
