The Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies announces a call for papers for the third ACRPS Conference for Graduate Students in Western Universities, to be held from 26-28 March 2022, in Doha, Qatar. Prospective participants have until 15 November 2021 to submit proposals. This third round will build on the success of the first and second rounds of the Arab Graduate Students Conference held in 2018 and 2020, respectively, which established an unprecedented academic tradition in the Arab region. In the first round, 83 researchers were selected for participation in the conference from a pool of 250 research proposals submitted to the conference committee, and 57 researchers participated in the second round from a pool of 150 research proposals.
The conference will provide Arab doctoral students and recent PhD graduates of the social sciences and humanities based at Western universities an open space to present papers rooted in their graduate studies. This unique conference will give the participants the chance to benefit from discussions with their peers and with established Arab academics. By holding the meeting in an Arab country, the conference will give the participants an opportunity to better acquaint themselves with an Arab research agenda as well as to create collegial, professional networks within the Arab region. Participants will also gain the opportunity to have their work published in Arabic, through one of the ACRPS’ publication channels.
Eligible students interested in applying should submit the following:
Prospective participants can submit their application online in Arabic or English by 15 November 2021.
The academic committee will communicate directly with those applicants whose proposals have been accepted for participation in the conference.
If the application is successful, participants should complete drafts of papers between 5,000 and 8,500 words in length, 45 days before the conference begins. Submitted drafts must follow the guidelines determined by the ACRPS.
