Call for Proposals
The theme for this year’s session is Christian–Muslim Relations — interreligious interchange and confluence in the Mediterranean milieu. We welcome paper or panel proposals regarding relations between Christians, Muslims, and those of other faith groups in the Mediterranean region broadly in all time periods, from a variety of methodological perspectives. Topics may include pilgrimage, visual and material culture, artistic expression, popular culture, intellectual exchanges, cooperation, conflict, and so forth. We furthermore invite paper or panel proposals on Christianities in Israel and Palestine, or in diaspora from that region. Proposals relating to all time periods, themes, and methodological perspectives are welcome.
This Consultation is devoted to the study of developments within Coptic, Armenian, Chaldean/Assyrian, Syrian, Maronite, and other relevant communities living inside the Middle East or in lands of immigration. We cover themes from the early Christian period to the present, encompassing various approaches and subjects. Our aim is to establish an interdisciplinary platform for dialogue among differing approaches and projects and to provide opportunities for scholars to discuss their work in relation to the overall field of the study of religion.
Anonymity of Review Process
Proposals are anonymous to Chairs and Steering Committee Members during review, but visible to Chairs prior to final acceptance or rejection.
