The 30th Annual Middle East History and Theory Conference will take place at the University of Chicago on Friday and Saturday, May 1–2, 2015. We are pleased to invite students and faculty to submit papers for the conference.

As always, we welcome a broad range of submissions from across the disciplines, including (but not limited to) anthropology, art history, cinema and media studies, economics, history, literature, philosophy, politics, religion, sociology… or any other topic concerning the Middle East from the advent of Islam to the present day.

Those wishing to participate should send a 250-word abstract to the conference organizers at by Friday, February 20, 2015. We will accept both individual papers and prearranged themed panels; the latter format is especially encouraged.

Stay tuned for a more detailed call for papers—including the name of this year’s keynote speaker, and a special solicitation of papers in certain subject areas—to be circulated later in January.
