BRISMES Annual Conference 2015: Liberation?
Liberation has been a recurrent theme in the Middle East for millennia. People have sought it in a multitude of ways – through politics, mysticism, philosophy, and personal piety. Together with ‘bread and dignity’, it was one of the central principles of the Arab Spring. With the reassertion of military rule in Egypt, and the descent in Syria from popular uprisings to bloody civil war, ‘liberation’ is now even more in question in the Middle East than it was before 2011. The BRISMES Annual Conference 2015 will explore the multitude of meanings that the concept has for the region today.
BRISMES 2015 invites papers on any aspect of liberation – and we will also welcome papers on any other theme. We will include panels on as wide as possible a range of disciplines, including: politics, religious studies (Islam, and also other religions), history, law, economics, sociology, anthropology, literature, linguistics, geography, translation studies, and language teaching.
