The Problem of Piracy
24/06/2019 9:00am - 26/06/2019 5:00pm
University of Strathclyde
this three-day conference seeks to address these and other "problems" of piracy by bringing together a wide range of postgraduate, early career, and senior researchers who study any aspect of piracy and maritime predation across various chronological, geographical, and disciplinary barriers. Doing so will offer the opportunity to compare and contrast different episodes, interpretations, and perceptions of piracy and maritime predation from the ancient to the modern period.
Joining the Dots: Interdisciplinarity in Middle East Studies
24/06/2019 1:00pm - 26/06/2019 5:00pm
BRISMES and AIMES, University of Leeds
Though ‘interdisciplinarity' is consistently upheld as an important and necessary aspect of enterprising scholarly research within the field of Middle Eastern Studies, the precise nature of effective interdisciplinary research remains underexplored. The Conference seeks to celebrate interdisciplinarity as vital in understanding the interconnectedness of the social, cultural, political and economic structures and conditions throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Registration information available shortly.
