The Islamic Manuscript Association is pleased to announce that the Sixth Islamic Manuscript Conference will be held at Queens' College, University of Cambridge from 8-10 July 2010.  The Conference will be hosted by the Thesaurus Islamicus Foundation, the Cambridge Central Asia Forum, and the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Centre of Islamic Studies, University of Cambridge.  The theme of the Conference will be Central Asian Islamic manuscripts and manuscript collections.

 

 

 

The Association invites the submission of abstracts on topics related to the study of Islamic manuscripts – particularly codicology – and the care and management of Islamic manuscript collections. Preference will be shown to submissions pertaining to the Conference's theme. 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 Association will also consider submissions on topics that do not fall directly under the purviews of the working groups but are yet concerned with scholarship on Islamic manuscripts or the care and management of Islamic manuscript collections.  Please note that the total number of papers accepted will not exceed 25 and that preference will be given to speakers who have not presented papers at the Association's previous conferences.

 

 

 

The invitation is open to members and non-members of the Association.  The languages of the Conference will be Arabic and English and submissions will be accepted in both languages.  The deadline for submissions is 31 January 2010.  Late submissions will not be considered.  The duration of each conference paper is 30 minutes inclusive of 10 minutes of questions and answers.

 

 

 

Please send an abstract of 500 words, a resume and the attached cover sheet to the Association's Executive Committee at the below email, fax or postal address:
