Call for Papers & Panel Proposals

We would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming response, leading to receipt of nearly 100 abstracts and half a dozen panel proposals. The Program of the conference will be posted within the next two weeks. All those who have made submissions will be advised of the outcome before that time.

Submissions of proposed conference presentations and/or panel proposals are warmly invited. Those wishing to present papers at the conference should submit abstracts in English of no more than 200 words, together with a brief statement outlining their institutional affiliation(s) (if any) and contact details, to by 30 September 2011. Those who would like to propose a panel (comprised of three speakers) should do so at the same time.

Limited ground transportation and all conference catering, materials and activities will be covered by the host organisations. In addition, a limited number of modest stipends may be available to conference speakers on the basis of financial need; please indicate at the time of submission if you would like to seek this assistance. Unfortunately, however, no funding is available to support conference participants’ travel to Cairo.

Any questions may be directed to Fleur Johns or Thomas Skouteris, respectively. We look forward to seeing you in Cairo in February 2012.
