“MediterráneoS 2012”: International Conference of Junior Researchers in Mediterranean and Near Eastern Languages and Cultures
Centro de Ciencias Humanas y Sociales, CSIC (Madrid, Spain)
November 22-23, 2012
We encourage Junior Researchers in the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences, doctoral students and recent PhD holders, to participate in this Conference. The presentations should not exceed 20 minutes, and may be read either in English or Spanish.
The “MediterráneoS” International Conference is organized by Junior Researchers members of the Institute of Languages and Cultures of the Mediterranean and the Near East (CCHS – CSIC). The first "MediterráneoS" International Conference was held in 2010 with a great scope of participation. As in the first encounter, the 2nd edition aims to create a multidisciplinary framework for discussion and reflection focusing on the study of written or oral corpora produced in the areas bordered by the Mediterranean Sea. Our goal is, therefore, to highlight the importance of the various methodological approaches applied to research in the different fields of Humanities.
We warmly welcome proposals related to the following fields:
- Philological studies: linguistics, textual criticism, literary analysis.
- Studies on the material media:
- Indirect or literary sources (palaeography, transmission and translation).
- Direct or documentary sources (papyrology and epigraphy).
- Social and Cultural History – Transmission and evolution of thought – Construction and crisis of identities.
Abstracts can be written in Spanish or English and should contain between 300 and 500 words, with some keywords included. Please submit proposals no later than July 22nd 2012, to the Conference e-mail, specifying the chosen topic in the subject field. The submissions should include the following data: Name and Surname, Title of degree, year of PhD degree (for PhD holders), Research Centre or University of origin.
