Fifth Conference of the School of Mamluk Studies, Ghent, July 5-7, 2018
Use the form below to submit a panel proposal.
Two days of the conference (July 6 and 7) will be structured in pre-organized panels.
Panels may focus on any aspect of the intellectual, political, social, economic, and artistic life of the Mamluk period. The panels will be organized into coherent presentations of three to four papers of twenty minutes each. Panel proposals must be made by a representative, who will be responsible for its organization. Please note that in case of cancellation of two papers out of the three (or three out of the four) composing the panel, the panel will have to be withdrawn from the program. Time allotted to each paper will be twenty minutes. Discussion will take place at the end of each panel.
A maximum of 8 panel proposals will be selected.
The deadline for panel proposals is November 30, 2017.
Panels must be pre-organized. The panel proposal must be made by a representative who will be responsible for its organization. Panel proposals must include the relevant information about each paper and its author (see below), as well as the name of the panel's chairperson (who may be one of the panelists). It is not possible to propose panel papers individually.
Panel organizers must provide the following information for each panelist and paper: full name, occupation, affiliation, country, email address, paper title, paper abstract (300 words or less), one page CV. Please make sure you have all of this information before beginning the proposal process. The proposal cannot be submitted if any information is missing.
The time allotted for each paper will be twenty minutes. Discussion will take place at the end of each panel.
If more panel proposals are received than can be accomodated in the time available, the organizers will evaluate proposals and select those that provide conference attendees the greatest variety of topics and points of view.
