“Seminar for Arabian Studies 2013”, 26-28 juill. 2013, Londres

About the Seminar

The Seminar for Arabian Studies is the only annual international forum for the presentation of the latest academic research on the Arabian Peninsula. The subjects covered include archaeology, history, epigraphy, languages, literature, art, culture, ethnography, geography, etc. from the earliest times to the present day or, in the case of political and social history, to the end of the Ottoman Empire (1922).

Its three-day conference is held each July at the British Museum and the Proceedings are always published in time for the conference the following year – a record for the publication of conference proceedings. Between 50 and 60 papers are presented each year, together with many posters. In recent years, there has also been a Special Session on a particular topic, papers from which are published in a separate Supplement, also within the year. Recent Special Sessions have been on “The development of Arabic as a written language”, “The Nabataeans in Focus”, and “Museums in Arabia”. In 2013, the Special Session will be on “The ancient and modern languages of Southern Arabia”. Over 200 scholars and students from countries throughout the world attend the Seminar each year. Interested members of the public are also very welcome.

The Seminar is very happy to receive submissions for the presentation of research posters. All submissions should be completed using the poster abstract submission form and emailed directly to seminar.arab@durham.ac.uk, for consideration by the Steering Committee. The deadline for the submission of poster abstracts is the 31st May 2013


Invitations to attend the Seminar and/or to give a paper can be issued on request to enable participants to obtain leave from their academic institutions and/or to obtain visas. However, invitations to give a paper can only be issued after an abstract has been submitted and accepted. In addition the Seminar is run on a largely voluntary basis and is non-profit-making. It is therefore unable to offer financial assistance for travel or accommodation or to waive the conference fee.
