Conference: “Labour, Livelihood and Culture: Crafts and Music in the Middle East, South and Central Asia”, University of London, 24 May 2013 Organised by the Middle East, South and Central Asia Forum (MESCAF), Institute of Musical Research (IMR), School of Advanced Studies, University of London & Art and Design Research Institute, Middlesex University, London. This one-day conference explores arts, crafts, music and dance of the Middle East, South and Central Asia through a focus on labour and livelihood. This focus aims to bring to light little-researched angles of social and political economies of culture, and ways in which they have changed and shifted in different historical eras and different political, economic and social formations. In this conference, we aim to spread a wider focus on labour and livelihood looking at it through a variety of lenses as performing arts and crafts, from courtly and classical to mass-produced and contemporary practice, and in epochs ranging from colonial or feudal to globalised and neoliberal. Deadline for abstracts 15 April 2013. Information http://www.h-net.org/announce/show.cgi?ID=202621 ____________ 4. 11th Conference or SeSaMO: "Doing Citizenship.

Conference: “Whither the Nation? National Identity in the Twentieth-century and Contemporary Middle East and South Asia”, Beirut, 27-29 September 2013 The Orient Institut and the Center for Arab and Middle Eastern Studies at the American University of Beirut will be convening this conference. The aim of the conference will be to discuss recent research on the different political and social ideologies that emerged in the Middle East and South Asia during the following historical times: late nineteenth and early twentieth century; inter-war period; post second-world war with a specific focus on the 1970s-1990s; and the post-cold war period leading to contemporary times. The purpose of this sampling is to allow for a historicization of ideas that is based on the central principle of recognizing the historical specificity and material reality of any theory. The conference seeks to bring together research on identity formation within specific historical moments, both synchronically and diachronically. It thus places importance on the transformations of identitarian politics across time and within the specific temporal intervals mentioned above. Most importantly, the conference seeks to explore the enduring links between nationalism and modernity as a specific political economic project. The aim is to publish the conference proceedings in an edited volume. The deadline for abstract is May 25, 2013. For the detailed call for paper contact Dr.Nadia Bou Ali at BouAli@orient-institut.org.

Conference: “Everyday Life Practices of Muslims in Europe: Consumption and Aesthetics”, KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium, 28-29 November 2013 Organiser: KU Leuven Gülen Chair for Intercultural Studies (GCIS). This workshop sets out to understand the everyday practices of Muslims living in Europe. The diverse and various (non)-religious daily life practices indicate the non-defined boundaries of Muslims whose practices can be a part of the stigmatised-open spaces in public discourses. Examining the relationship between Islam and liberal democratic values, it is important to note what kind of practices and daily life experiences are exercised in private-public areas, which also determine the views and public perception of Muslims.
