Graduate Student Pre-Conference in Turkish and Turkic Studies, Washington (Etats-Unis), 22/11/2014 — LIMITE : 10/10/2014
The American Association of Teachers of Turkic Languages (AATT) is pleased to announce the tenth annual “Graduate Student Pre-Conference in Turkish and Turkic Studies”. This Pre-Conference was established to mark the 20th anniversary of the founding of AATT. The Pre-Conference is co-sponsored by the Institute for Turkish Studies and AATT. The tenth annual Pre-Conference will take place on November 22, 2014, in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Middle East Studies Association (MESA), taking place in Washington D.C. November 22-25, 2014.
Pre-Conference participants are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to attend the MESA conference. The Pre-Conference is designed to encourage research making significant use of sources in Turkish and Turkic languages by graduate students in Turkish and Turkic Studies enrolled at institutions in North America. It will promote contact between students at various institutions and allow for feedback from faculty discussants participating in the Pre-Conference. Another goal is to help students progress towards more formal presentations at national conferences such as those of MESA, CESS, and organizations devoted to specific disciplines. AATT will award a limited number of travel awards to help subvent the cost of student participation.
Students are also encouraged to seek funding from their home institutions.
Students should submit 250-word proposal for a paper together with the following information:
2. Current institutional affiliation (department/university)
3. Adviser’s name
4. Educational background (undergraduate and graduate degree programs)
5. Current status (taking courses, preparing for exams, researching dissertation, writing dissertation, defended/deposited dissertation)
6. Title of dissertation (if applicable)
7. Contact information (email, telephone number, preferred mailing address)
The deadline for submission of proposals is October 1, 2014.
Graduate students already presenting a paper at the larger meeting (MESA or CESS) are not eligible to participate concurrently in the Graduate Student Pre-Conference in Turkish and Turkic Studies.
Unfortunately AATT cannot consider requests for travel support for graduate students enrolled at institutions outside North America.
Proposals should be submitted by email to:
Professor Uli Schamiloglu
Department of Languages and Cultures of Asia
University of Wisconsin-Madison
Professor Erika H. Gilson
Department of Near Eastern Studies
Applicants will be informed of the selection committee’s decision by October 10, 2014.
18-21 February 2015 – “Global IR and Regional Worlds: A New Agenda for International Studies,” International Studies Association 56th Annual Convention (New Orleans, LA). For further details, see http://www.isanet.org/Conferences/NewOrleans2015/Call.aspx.
Co-IRIS (International Relations and Islamic Studies Research Cohort) is planning to submit two proposals, one or more traditional panels (number of panels depend on the papers received by the Co-IRIS team) and one workshop (aiming for financial support by ISA). Our panel title is “International Relations and Islamic Studies: A New Agenda” and our workshop title is “Co-IRIS: Islamic Perspectives on Theory and Praxis in International Relations.”
Co-IRIS was established by a group of researchers interested in developing and sustaining a body of knowledge that addresses the theories and practices of the Muslim civilization and of Muslim societies with regards to international affairs and to the discipline of International Relations. For more details about Co-IRIS, please visit our website at www.coiris.org. We are taking ISA’s theme as an opportunity to make the case of presenting Islamic ontology, episteme, methods, paradigms, and history for the study of International Relations and global affairs and for discussing the experiences and praxis of Muslim-dominated actors (nations and organizations) and their interactions and behaviors among themselves and with non-Muslim dominated actors in the fora of international affairs regardless of time period.
A list of welcome themes/topics includes:
– Islam as a theory of IR?
– Islamic norms and values in IR
– Islamic agencies and actors of IR
– Islamic sources in International Law
– Plurality and Solidarity in Muslim Societies
– Deciphering theories of IR with Islamic episteme
– Social Movements, Democratization, and the Arab Spring
– Is there an Islamic Nation-State? Or Islam is a civilizational state?
– Islamic thinkers, e.g. al-Qaradawi, Khaldun or Qutb, and their thoughts on IR
– Comparing the Islamic ‘ummah’ with the ‘international society’ of the English School of IR
If you want to add more, you are welcome to suggest themes or topics relevant to Co-IRIS. Also, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have ideas, comments, or opinions about Co-IRIS. Please email us your (200-300 word) abstract and (100 word) biographical information by May 26, 2014 for traditional panels, and by July 11, 2014 for the workshop at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking forward to receiving your proposals.
