The Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa (ASMEA) is currently seeking paper proposals and panel proposals for presentation at the Seventh Annual ASMEA Conference being held October 30 - November 1, 2014 in Washington, DC.
H-AMCA is a network devoted to the study of modern and contemporary art from the Arab world, Iran, and Turkey. We aim to create a network of interested scholars and organizations to enable historians and other scholars to easily communicate current research and teaching interests, and to promote scholarly cooperation between both persons and organizations.
The third edition of the (Non) Western Fashion Conference is focussing on the politics of fashion from a global perspective. Despite so-called fashion globalization, the epicentre of fashion is still very much concentrated in Europe. But what do we really know about the global politics of fashion? How does fashion intersect with global politico-economic processes? What are the global power relations embodied in fashion? How do the meanings of fashionable and traditional dress relate to that hegemony? How should agency and orientalism be understood?
