A final preparatory meeting, chaired by general director of the ACRPS, Azmi Bishara, has decided the program for the 7th conference for the Social Sciences and Humanities, which will convene on 23-25 March 2019 at the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, marking the conclusion of two years of preparations. The conference was previously held annually, but in order to provide ample time to conduct critical research with qualitative research value, new analysis and original additions to the discipline, the Center decided the conference would be held every two years instead. All the papers presented for the conference, received by the committee during the specified timeframe and approved by the peer-review committee, have been considered for the Arab Prize in the Social Sciences and Humanities, whereby the Center awards three prizes annually for research on the conference themes.
The academic Committee received more than 500 research proposals to participate the Conference and approved 145 proposals as of 31 October 2017. The Commission then received 107 full research papers for peer-review by 30 September 2018. After the research received underwent review, the Committee decided to include 73 papers in the conference, which aims to promote Arab research production in the field of social sciences and humanities in order to consolidate and transform it into a tradition in Arab research life.
The conference program includes 37 sessions divided into four tracks, running simultaneously. It deals with various aspects of research methods in the fields of social and human sciences, such as philosophy, sociology, anthropology, history, psychology, and linguistics. In addition to visiting and associate researchers at the ACRPS, the conference will include professors and students of the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies and scholars from the Doha Historical Dictionary of the Arabic Language, with guests from Arab universities and research institutions. This conference is the first in an Arab research institution where research methods are discussed both quantitatively and qualitatively and boasts a vast number of high-quality researchers belonging to different generations. It is worth noting that the Arab Award for Social and Human Sciences will be distributed during the conference.
This conference is a valuable opportunity for the DI’s students and young researchers to benefit directly from an academic conference on research methods and to network with researchers from different Arab countries. The research presented at the conference will form the basis of a book series on research methods.
