CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
DEADLINE: FRIDAY, June 1, 2007
The Social Science Research Council (SSRC) is pleased to announce an open call for proposals from faculty members at accredited universities and colleges in any world region, to organize and direct a 4-day thematic workshop at an international conference on "Inter-Asian Connections." Workshop directors selected by the SSRC will be expected to help recruit and select 8 international workshop participants from across relevant disciplines in the social sciences and related fields. To be held in Dubai, February 21-24, 2008, the conference will host multiple workshops showcasing innovative research from across the social sciences and related disciplines, on themes of particular relevance to Asia, reconceptualized as a dynamic and interconnected historical, geographical, and cultural formation stretching from the Middle East through Eurasia and South Asia, to East Asia. We invite researchers to apply to organize a workshop on a theme of their choice. Each workshop may have one or two directors and will include 8 participants (graduate students, junior faculty, other researchers and scholars) chosen competitively. Workshop directors should have sufficient research experience on the region and themes of their proposals. The full text of the call for proposals is available at: http://www.ssrc.org/program_areas/global/papers/. For additional inquiries, please contact the SSRC at intl_collaboration at ssrc.org.
