Women Who Made History

 3rd International Conference on Arts and Humanities, 4-7 June 2019, Nicosia, Cyprus

The 3rd International Conference on Arts and Humanities is an event organized by the International Centre for Studies of Arts and Humanities (ICSAH) and the Dante Alighieri Society Nicosia that aims to explore the topic of women who made history. The conference will be held on 4-7 June 2019 at the University of Nicosia, Cyprus. We warmly welcome all papers broadly relevant to the subject without predefining chronological and territorial limitations, as the major goal of the conference is to address questions that involve more than one research field and promote multidisciplinary dialogue and cooperation. The papers will be published online and in a dedicated volume of Conference Proceedings.

We invite proposals which study all aspects of women in literature, art, history and philosophy in order to highlight the variations, similarities and particularities of the figure of the woman in different cultural and disciplinary contexts. We encourage also papers that accentuate the conception, meaning and symbolism of the woman as an icon and a force that transcends the barriers of time, and embraces the very essence of the human being.

The International Centre for Studies of Arts and Humanities is a nonprofit, interdisciplinary organization dedicated to the research, study and education in a vast range of disciplines in the fields of Arts and Humanities. The mission of the organization is to:

  1. Promote the worldwide understanding, study and teaching across a range of disciplines of the Arts and Humanities.
  2. Provide additional forums for the exchange of ideas regarding Arts and Humanities in schools, Universities, libraries, museums and other contexts.
  3. Support the interchange of research and the scholarships of knowledge, teaching and service in the Humanities through conferences, publications and relative activities.

Submission rules:  To submit a proposal for a paper of approximately 20 minutes, please send an abstract of 350 words or less to icsahcy1@gmail.com by April 30th, 2019.
