University of Toronto - Call for Papers
The Graduate Students' Association of the Department of Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations (NMCGSA), University of Toronto, Canada, is pleased to issue this CALL FOR PAPERS for our thirteenth annual Graduate Symposium.
This year's Symposium will be held on March 5, 2009, in Toronto, Canada. The deadline for submissions is January 9, 2009. The theme of this year's Symposium is "International and Intercultural Relations in the Near and Middle East from Antiquity to the Present", which we believe has both broad appeal and currency.
Our Symposium provides graduate students the opportunity to present original research in a conference-like forum, the proceedings of which are periodically published. We encourage feedback from attending peers and faculty members, and foster interdisciplinary awareness and discussion. The Symposium celebrates the excellence and effort of all participants. This year, our thirteenth, we will also recognize an exceptional presentation (as determined by a peer-
review panel) with a small monetary award.
Graduate students are invited to submit proposals outlining original research broadly defined by this year's theme, by providing a 250-word abstract via our online application site, email, mail, or fax. The address coordinates are:

mail or fax: Sarah Schellinger, Symposium Co-coordinator, Dept. of Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations, University of Toronto, 4 Bancroft Ave., 2nd Floor, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M5S 1C1 (fax:
The Symposium generally runs from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, followed by an informal reception for all participants. Each presentation will be allotted twenty minutes, followed by a five to ten minute question and discussion period.
We will be offering partial travel funds to one graduate student from a Near or Middle Eastern university in order to foster greater international scholarly dialogue. Cost for travel and accommodation for all other participants are not covered by the NMCGSA.
Please direct any questions to our Symposium Co-coordinator.
