Call for Papers
Call for Papers International Workshop
The workshop will focus on Salonica's unique cultural fabric and the resulting mutual influences which were felt in all areas of life in the city. The workshop also aims to delineate the multilayered and complex character of the city as an inter-cultural meeting point.
We welcome papers which address the various cultural aspects of Salonica during the Ottoman Empire up until and including the interbellum. Especially welcome will be papers which deal with cultural exchanges and processes of acculturation brought about by encounters between the various communities and religions, and examine change and transformation arising from the repercussions of modernity. Priority will be given to proposals which explore new avenues of research and make use of new sources and/or new methodologies.
Proposals (title and an abstract of no more than 300 words) and a short CV (1-2 pages) should be submitted here by October 31, 2016. The abstract should clarify the connection between the suggested topic and the intercultural aspects of the city's history during the period in question. Notifications will be sent by the middle of November 2016
Scholars participating in the workshop will be requested to send a draft of their papers to the other participants by April 1, 2017. These drafts should be read ahead of time by all participants. The workshop's sessions will consist
of 15-minute presentations in which speakers will present their main arguments; the presentations will be followed by a discussion.
The workshop will take place in May 22-23 in Jerusalem and Haifa, and the proceedings will be in English. The workshop's Academic Committee reserves the right to recommend select papers for publication in The Journal of Levantine Studies, contingent upon customary peer-review processes.
The workshop's organizers will provide accommodation and meals. The budget for airfares is extremely limited and participants are requested to seek alternative sources of funding. For any questions please write to email@example.com
