The Gulf Research Center is pleased to announce the holding of the first Gulf Research Meeting to be held at Robinson College, University of Cambridge from July 7-10, 2010. The meeting is organized by the Gulf Research Center Foundation office at Cambridge and done with the support of the Center for Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies of the University of Cambridge.
The overall purpose and objective of the Gulf Research Meeting is to create an academic environment to foster Gulf studies and provide broader academic exchange amongst scholars in the Gulf Region. For the
first meeting, a total of twelve workshops along topical themes pertinent to the Gulf region have been identified and an open Call for papers has now been issued. For more details on the individual workshops and the registration process, please refer to the Gulf Research Meeting Website under www.grcevent.net/cambridge. Travel allowances for the meeting are provided. There will also be an opening event for all participants. For the Gulf Research Meeting, the organizers especially encourage the participation of young scholars to answer the call for papers as this is a unique opportunity to heighten awareness of Gulf issues as well as contribute to empirical research in respective areas of interest. Of course, the call is open to all established researchers, scholars and professors. The organizers further would like to ask everyone involved in the field of Gulf studies to distribute this announcement through their own network and to encourage potential participants to apply for one of the workshops. A poster of the event can also be downloaded through the event website. For any other inquiries, please contact Kareem Mahjoub at the Gulf Research Center under firstname.lastname@example.org
