CALL FOR PAPERS
BRISMES ANNUAL CONFERENCE 
University of Kent, Canterbury, 29 June–1 July 2020
KNOWLEDGE, POWER AND MIDDLE EASTERN STUDIES
 
The British Society for Middle Eastern Studies and the University of Kent’s School of Politics and International Relations invite proposals for the 2020 Annual BRISMES Conference on the theme of Knowledge, Power and Middle Eastern Studies.
 
In light of growing calls in many different parts of the world to decolonize academia and knowledge production more broadly, the organizers of BRISMES 2020 encourage the submission of papers that critically engage with the implications of this movement for the field of Middle East Studies.
 
In addition, we warmly invite complete panels or individual paper proposals on any topic related to the Middle East and North Africa. Please submit proposals for individual papers, complete panels, and/or roundtable discussions.
 
The main working language of the conference is English. However, this year, for the first time, BRISMES would like to experiment with the inclusion of a limited number of panels/roundtables in non-English languages spoken in the Middle East region. If you would like your panel/roundtable to be considered for a non-English language slot in the programme, please indicate this in your submission.
Please note that paper abstracts must not exceed 250 words and must be received by 6.00am (GMT) on Monday 25 November 2019 in order to be considered.
