Conference Description:

Institute of Mediterranean and Near Eastern Languages and Cultures (ILC)

CCHS-CSIC, Madrid, December 13-15, 2010

Throughout history, different cultural traditions, all of them with a considerable linguistic diversity, have flourished and converged in the Mediterranean and Near Eastern regions. The International Conference of Junior Researchers in Mediterranean and Near Eastern Languages and Cultures seeks to provide a transverse and interdisciplinary framework of discussion and reflection on the intellectual and cultural production of the Mediterranean and the Near East, from its earliest stages to the present. More precisely, this meeting pursues the analysis of the different political, religious and social trends of thought, material culture and artistic, literary and linguistic expressions brought together in this geographical area, highlighting the scope of this blend of traditions within different space-time surroundings.

We warmly welcome proposals regarding the following topics and guidelines:
1. Commercial and economic activity: cultural exchanges generated by trade, mint coin production and currency fluctuations; state control systems: taxation, charity and other bodies.
2. Orthodoxies and heterodoxies: philosophical, religious, magic and superstitious practices and ideas; millenarian and apocalyptic movements; power and religious legitimation.
3. Artistic expressions and material culture as means of transmission and evidence for religious, political and cultural ideologies; tradition and innovation, assimilation and influence.
4. Political processes and theory: effective execution of powers, authoritarian figures, methods of government, hierarchical relations within intra-state and supra-state structures.
5. Language, literature, textual criticism, hermeneutics: critical editions, modern research technologies and methods.
6. Transmission of knowledge and history of science: processes of reception, cultural exchange and transfer among societies in contact.

We encourage junior researchers in the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences, as well as recent PhD´s (with thesis completed within 5 years prior to event) to participate. Papers should not exceed 20 minutes and may be read in Spanish or English.

Please submit abstracts (300-500 words maximum, including keywords and reference to chosen topic in mail subject), and a brief CV to, no later than July 12, 2010.
