7th Dorushe Graduate Student Conference on Syriac Studies

The Department of Theological Studies at Saint Louis University and Dorushe invite proposals for the 7th Dorushe Graduate Student Conference on Syriac Studies, to be held at Saint Louis University (Saint Louis, MO) on May 1-2, 2020.

Christine Shepardson (The University of Tennessee-Knoxville) will deliver a keynote address.

We welcome graduate student proposals for papers in all subjects, disciplines, and methodologies related to Syriac studies. In order to promote and diversify interaction at the conference, we invite proposals in two different categories:

(a) 20-minute conference papers

(b) 8- to 15-page dissertation interim reports.

Dissertation interim reports will be circulated in advance to facilitate discussion at the conference, and should introduce, at minimum, the project’s argument, method, and primary source material.

Proposals of either kind should be emailed by February 15, 2020.  Please attach:

(1) an abstract of no more than 300 words, using a unicode font for non-Roman characters, and (for the purpose of anonymous judging) not including the author’s name or other identifications

(2) a separate cover sheet with the author’s name, academic affiliation, and e-mail address; paper title and type (20-minute paper or dissertation interim report); and indication of any technological support needed.

Both documents should be submitted in .rtf or .doc format.
