The aim of the Meeting is to meet and share recent research, work in progress, and contemplations on our fields, with a strong focus on making interdisciplinary connections between sometimes mutually isolated departments and fields in the study of history; language and literature; art, archaeology and material culture; Islamic studies and other Middle Eastern religious traditions; and across regional boundaries. The Medieval Middle East Meeting will be a yearly forum for students, junior researchers and senior scholars to present historical work-in-progress that is related to the medieval Middle East and Islamic world broadly defined to include North Africa, Central Asia, and the Mediterranean world (e.g. Andalusia). The conception of medieval likewise is broadly defined, also including late antiquity to early modernity. Students will benefit from presenting their research before senior scholars and by attending the presentation of more senior scholars and seeing research in process. In addition, each year the programme will include a roundtable on a hot topic of relevance to all. This year, the roundtable theme will be “The Teaching of the Medieval Middle East in the Netherlands”.
We expect the programme to consist of around 10-20 short papers on a variety of subjects, presented in a number of parallel sessions by research students and tenured staff. We will aim to accept all submitted papers of a sufficient quality. In this way, a broad cross-section of our fields can be represented. Papers will be 20 minutes long followed by 10 minutes for Q&A.
