5. Conference: "Salman Rushdie in the 21st Century: Swallowing a World Date", University of Lisbon, 7-8 November 2013

Following the announcement of the release in September 2012 of Salman Rushdie’s memoir, Joseph Anton (alias adopted while under a fatwa that sentenced him to death in 1989), it seems timely to survey the relevance of the work of such a prolific author in the 21st century. The impact it has had, since 1975, on various aspects – cultural, literary, ideological, political, and even theoretical, inextricable of the development of postcolonial studies – deserves the critical attention that an event such as this international conference is able to generate.

11. Ninth Islamic Manuscript Conference: "Manuscripts of the Mamluk Sultanate and Its Contemporaries", Magdalene College, University of Cambridge, UK, 2-4 /9/ 2013

The Conference seeks to explore the full range of manuscript production that occurred from the thirteenth to sixteenth centuries CE: from books produced under royal patronage, such as the Mamluk and Ilkhanid Qur’an manuscripts that are almost unmatched for splendour, opulence, and size in the history of the Islamic arts of the book, to simpler, less lavish manuscripts that are no less essential to increasing our understanding of Islamic codicology and palaeography.

The Conference will be organised around the Association's four key working areas: cataloguing, conservation, digitisation, and research and publishing; and papers falling into these broad categories will be included in the relevant panel.

The languages of the Conference will be Arabic and English, and submissions will be accepted in both languages. The deadline for submissions is 22 October 2012. ¬The Association will pay for round-trip economy class travel to Cambridge, accommodation in Magdalene College, and College-based meals for authors whose papers are accepted.
