This conference will be the first full academic conference organised by the European Association of Israel Studies.
It will build on our successful launch conference in September 2011 at SOAS, University of London, which was attended by representatives of many European countries, from Siberia to Iberia .
The aim of the conference is to bring together scholars from a variety of disciplines who are engaged in research in any aspect of Israel studies.
It will continue to build on areas previously investigated in the academic literature and also open up new fields of intellectual enquiry.
The organisers welcome all proposals including suggestions for panels which are pertinent to Israel Studies.
The EAIS will offer a limited number of travel and accommodation stipends for the Munich conference for graduate students and junior faculty.
Please send an abstract of 200-250 words together with biographical background of about 50-100 words by Monday 2 April 2012 to: Daniel Lowe, firstname.lastname@example.org
All proposals are subject to a review process. The conference will be held in English.
The conference fee will be 20 euros. The student rate will be 15 euros.
All presenters will be members of the EAIS.
