ARAM Society for Syro-Mesopotamian Studies is organizing its Fifty First International Conference on the history and the cultural heritage of the Aramaeans B.C.: History, Literature, and Archaeology, to be held at the Oriental Institute, the University of Oxford, on 20 th – 22 nd July, 2020.
The conference will start on Monday July 20 th at 9am, finishing on Wednesday July 22 nd at 7pm. Each speaker’s paper is limited to 45 minutes, with an additional 15 minutes for discussion.
Please attach your CV if you are a new speaker.
The Scientific Committee of the Conference cannot finalise your proposal without an abstract, which should reach us before mid-February. Not all papers which appear on the first draft of our programme will be accepted, for the Scientific Committee can only confirm your participation in the conference after reading your abstract. Your abstract should be around 300 words, and it should contain the main sources of your research as well as the main points of your talk.
Each talk is limited to 45 minutes with an additional 15 minutes for discussion. It would help us greatly if the speaker keeps to the time allocated in order to allow the other speakers sufficient time to address the conference. If however a speaker feels that 45 minutes is not enough time for his/her topic, an extended version of his/her paper can be published in the ARAM periodical, while the 45 minute limit will be retained for the presentation of his/her paper at the conference itself. Would you please make your own arrangements for accommodation in Oxford, as Aram does not undertake to arrange accommodation for you.
All papers given at the conference will be considered for publication in a future edition of the ARAM periodical, subject to editorial review. If you wish to participate in the conference, please contact our Oxford address.
