Joining the Dots: Interdisciplinarity in Middle East Studies
Though ‘interdisciplinarity’ is consistently upheld as an important and necessary aspect of enterprising scholarly research within the field of Middle Eastern Studies, the precise nature of effective interdisciplinary research remains underexplored. The 2019 BRISMES Conference seeks to celebrate interdisciplinarity as vital in understanding the interconnectedness of the social, cultural, political and economic structures and conditions throughout the Middle East and North Africa, and explore how disciplinary silos can be overcome in favour of communication between the humanities, social sciences and language studies on the region. To this end, the conference hopes to provide a forum for an open and wide-ranging debate on good practice in interdisciplinary design and research, its challenges as well as its potential of unlocking the complexities of the region.
Deadline for submissions: 17:00 (GMT) on Thursday 8 November 2018
