The development of the historical profession in the Arab World since 1945 has received scant attention from Western scholars of the region. This is particularly the case regarding modern Arabic studies on Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Even in the field of medieval Islamic history, there is generally little awareness on the part of scholars based in the West, about the research and publications of their colleagues in the Arabic-speaking countries. As a consequence, Arabic secondary sources are rarely utilized and reviewed by Western historians of the medieval Islamic period.

All scholars working in the areas of myth and/or fairy tales are invited to submit paper or panel proposals for the upcoming SWPACA Conference. Panels are now forming on topics related to all aspects of myths and fairy tales and their connections to popular culture. To participate in this area, you do not need to present on both myths and fairy tales; one or the other is perfectly fine. Presentations considering both genres are of course welcome and can stimulate interesting discussions.

Call for contributions: 4th Edition of 'Distant Worlds Journal' on Humans and Society

Type: 
Call for Papers
Date: 
November 30, 2017
Subject Fields: 
Archaeology, Assyriology, Classical Studies, Religious Studies and Theology, Ancient History

For the fourth issue of the Distant Worlds Journal we welcome contributions (3000–6000 words) in English or German from the various disciplines of ancient studies. The topic of this issue is: "Humans and society". If we take into account that humans possess a range of emotional and intellectual faculties, we can begin to conceptualize the individual human in antiquity both in relation to external entities, organizations, and institutions and as an integral member of his or her society. We might therefore ask: How does an individual engage with his or her immediate environment?
