9th Conference on Ibadi Studies - Call for Papers
We are pleased to invite you to the 9th Conference on Ibadi Studies under the theme
"China and the World: Development and Cooperation from the Perspective of the Belt and Road Initiative. Diachronic and Cross-Border Transmission of Ibadi Knowledge",
which will take place on 17 – 19 September 2018 at the University of Peking and School of Foreign Languages.
The conference will bring together world specialists in the field to explore and discuss the historical relationships and transmission of knowledge that developed through a series of networks known as the terrestrial Silk Road and the maritime Silk Route. This transmission took place thanks to a process of cultural exchange between the East Asia and the rest of the Eurasia that began as early as the 11th century BCE. The conference will in particular investigate the interaction of Chinese and Ibadi knowledge within these land-based and maritime networks.
Your paper will be published in the series Studies on Ibadism and Oman (Olms Publisher). For this reason, we kindly ask you to submit your paper (approximately 20 pages) in English by 1st September 2018 or the latest during the conference.
We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Peking, School of Foreign Languages.
