Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference on the Middle East, South Asia and Africa

full name / name of organization: 
Department of Middle East and Asian Languages and Cultures, Columbia University
contact email:

Thursday, April 15 to Saturday, April 17, 2010
Proposals due January 5, 2010

Hosted by the Department of Middle East and Asian Languages and Cultures (MEALAC) at Columbia University

The discipline that was once called “Oriental Studies” has been divided up in various ways in today’s university. Post-colonial literature has a foothold in the English department, history departments have by and large stopped confusing “European history” with “world history,” and of course the area studies departments with venerable names like Near Eastern Studies or South Asian Languages and Civilizations have taken up an array of new methodologies from other departments. Several universities have begun expanding their African and South Asian studies offerings under the umbrella of “Global Studies.” This conference is concerned not with “the death of the discipline” as so many others have been, but rather with the diversity of the disciplines. We will survey this through student presentations, two faculty discussion panels, and a keynote address by an influential scholar.
