Recommended Posts

The Thirteenth Annual Conference of the Central & Inner Asia Seminar (CIAS 2008) will be held at the University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in the Croft Chapter House on Friday and Saturday May 16-17, 2008.

The proceedings of the conference will be published in due course in "Toronto Studies in Central and Inner Asia". Volume 9, the papers from CIAS 2007, will be available before the upcoming conference.

The theme of this year's gathering is "The Material Culture, Language and Religion of Central and Inner Asia". Scholars from any relevant discipline are invited to submit proposals for papers.

The time allowance for any presentation is 20 minutes. Please include the title, a one-page summary and a short copy of your curriculum vitae and send them, by email, to me at gillian.long@utoronto.ca or to Professor Michael Gervers at gervers@chass.utoronto.ca

The deadline for submissions is December 21, 2007 and those selected will be notified by email as soon as possible thereafter.

We regret that we do not have the financial resources to help with any transportation or accommodation costs. However we will do our best to expedite visa applications and offer hospitality during the conference.

We look forward to receiving many interesting proposals and to hosting another stimulating and enjoyable conference in Toronto in May.

Please forward this message to anyone else who may be interested. For further information see www.utoronto.ca/cias The website will be updated regularly as more information becomes available.
