Call for Papers
On the Outside Looking In: A Kurdish Studies Conference
Tuesday, 27th January 2015, at the University of Central Florida, Orlando, Florida, USA
A joint initiative between Soran University and the University of Central Florida
The study of Kurdistan and its peoples encompasses topics as timely as today’s headlines and as timeless as the most ancient civilizations. For the first conference in a pair of collaborative, interdisciplinary forums organized by Soran University and UCF, the organizers invite papers on Kurdistan’s social, political, security, linguistic, historical, and cultural dimensions. In keeping with the conference theme, the organizers particularly welcome papers that deal with questions of cultural introspection and self-critique, the evolving image of Kurdistan on the geopolitical stage, the Kurdish diaspora, degrees of historical distance, and dialogue across disciplines.
A conference fee of $75 covers registration, meals, and conference materials. Accommodation provided.
