For the sixth year running, the Centre for Palestine Studies at SOAS will host a one-day research seminar series aimed at providing a platform for PhD students working on Palestine or Palestine-related issues to present their projects and discuss theoretical and research issues.

The series will comprise three sessions each of which will put into conversation three researchers and a discussant to talk about their work.

Sessions are inter-disciplinary, looking at regional/thematic/conceptual conversations between projects. The organisers will try and ensure the papers can speak to each other or can be put under thematic strands.

Could you kindly send a brief (300-word) abstract and title for your paper to Dina Matar (CPS advisory board member) at by 8 January 2018.

CPS members and associates are encouraged to act as moderators and also to introduce their own work on Palestine.

The list of speakers and discussants will be announced on 10 January 2018.

Organiser: Centre for Palestine Studies and Centre for Media Studies
