CfP: 5th Congress on Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies (Lyon, 11-13 July 2023)

For its fifth edition, the “Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies” Scientific Interest Group (GIS MOMM) organizes its Congress at the University of Lyon on Tuesday 11, Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 July 2023.

Researchers and scholars (PhD candidates and above) are invited to submit proposals for thematic panels by 15 July 2022 on the website:

The Congress will take place in Lyon (France). It will be centered on the Palais Hirsch, on the Berges du Rhône campus of the Université Lumière Lyon 2. The sessions will be held within a perimeter bordered to the north by Place Ollier and to the south by Rue Raoul Servant, in order to involve as many of the University of Lyon’s institutions and research teams as possible.

To organize the Congress, several teams will join the three CNRS units that are already members of the GIS MOMM: History, Archaeology, Literature of the Medieval Christian and Muslim Worlds (CIHAM); the UMR Triangle – Action, Discourse, Political and Economic Thought; and the Laboratoire de Recherche Historique Rhône-Alpes (LARHRA). These three teams are affiliated to institutions within Lyon (universities of Lyon 2, Lyon 3, ENS de Lyon, Sciences Po Lyon), the region (Université Grenoble Alpes, Université Jean Monnet Saint-Etienne) and at national level (InSHS, EHESS). As in previous editions, the conference will be held in partnership with the IISMM (Institute for the Study of Islam and Societies of the Muslim World) and the SEMOMM (Society for Middle East and Muslim World Studies).
