The Social Sciences and Humanities Conference is one of the main highlights of the academic calendar of ACRPS events. Held biennially since 2017 (formerly an annual event), the meeting is one of the highlights of the Arab academic scene, bringing together scholars from across the expanse of the social sciences and humanities.
For each session within the annual series, sessions are divided into two parallel tracks, each of which is devoted to one of two selected themes. The two research themes for each individual conference are chosen both to reflect pressing, topical issues affecting the Arab region and to enhance and promote original Arabic language scholarship in timeless themes within the topics in question.
The Social Sciences and Humanities Conference is also the venue when the winners of the Arab Prize, given to recognize the accomplishments of researchers in the Arab academy, are announced.
The ACPRS held its sixth annual Social Sciences and Humanities Conference in March 2017. The conference adopted two themes. The humanities contributors were posed the title theme of “Ethics in Islamo-Arab Civilization". The Social Sciences participants were given the theme of “Arab Youth: Emigration and the Future”. Themes for the previous five conferences, held in successive years beginning in 2011, were as follows:
Fifth Conference themes:
Fourth Conference themes:
Third Conference themes:
Second Conference themes:
First Conference themes:
The seventh Social Sciences and Humanities Conference will be held in March 2019, under the theme "Research Methods in the Social Sciences and Humanities". This topic is aimed at sparking a critical dialogue among the largest possible number of Arab academics working within the Social Sciences and Humanities in order to raise important and complex issues in their respective disciplines.
