The Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa Annual Conference--a new, inter-disciplinary academic association that promotes the highest standards of research and teaching in the fields of Middle Eastern studies, African studies and their related disciplines--invites scholars to attend our annual conference set for April 24-26, 2008 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C.
The conference is entitled: “The Evolution of Islamic Politics, Philosophy, and Culture in the Middle East and Africa: From Traditional Limits to Modern Extremes.” It will feature a variety of panels that deal with this subject and a keynote speech from ASMEA’s Chairman, Professor Bernard Lewis of Princeton University. Professor Lewis will speak to conference attendees about the future of the Middle East.
Conference Registration: Your registration fee includes admission to all panels, a welcome reception, and complementary breakfasts, as well as the luncheon banquet with Professor Lewis. Conference registrants are eligible to receive a reduced rate at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel. Rooms are filling up quickly, so attendees are encouraged to act now to secure our special rate at the hotel. Some lodging assistance is still available.
