Conference URL: http://www.utexas.edu/cola/depts/mes/events/conferences/jiljadid2013/

The Department of and Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Texas at Austin are pleased to announce that they will host the 3rd Annual Jil Jadid Conference in Arabic Literature and Linguistics, a graduate student conference to be held at the University of Texas at Austin, February 21-23, 2013.

Jil Jadid aims to provide a forum for young scholars spread across a variety of disciplines to come together, share ideas and research, and discuss the future of their respective fields as they move forward in their careers and come to represent the eponymous “new generation” of scholars doing work on the Arabic-speaking world and its cultures.

Applicants may submit abstracts of no more than 400 words, not including references, in PDF format with fonts embedded. The deadline for abstracts is November 15, 2012. Abstracts should not include identifying information; you must, however, indicate the highest degree you have obtained and your current position (e.g. “M.A., Graduate Student,” “Ph.D., Assistant Professor,” etc.).

All papers treating topics in Arabic literature (classical and modern) and Arabic linguistics (including applied linguistics) will gladly be considered, in either English or Arabic (we ask that an English summary be prepared for any papers to be presented in Arabic). We especially encourage state of the field papers that provide a focused overview of a specific subfield of Arabic studies and suggest new avenues for research in that area.
