Symposium on Iraqi Culture from 1975 to 2003
Armstrong Atlantic State University, Savannah, Georgia
Saturday, April 23, 2005
There is much current discussion of the reconstructive and bureaucratic aspects of post-Saddam Iraq, but what was Saddam’s effect on the culture of Iraq while he ruled? This symposium will examine Saddam’s impact on art, literature, religion, education, and the daily life of Iraqis between 1975 and 2003.
Sponsored by the Honors Program of Armstrong Atlantic State University, the symposium schedule features lectures by invited speakers, presentations of student papers, and a moderated panel discussion.
Submission is open to all currently enrolled undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty members. A registration fee of $40 for faculty members, $25 for graduate students, $20 for undergraduate students, and $10 for attendees will be due upon notification of acceptance. Attendees need to register in advance. The registration fee for all includes lunch.
To submit a proposal, email an abstract of 300 words or less to address listed below including a cover letter with your name, university, brief curriculum vitae, email address, and phone number.
