Call for Papers: Muslims in the UK and Europe Postgraduate Symposium 17 June 2021

Organised by the Centre of Islamic Studies at the University of Cambridge

Postgraduate Symposium: Muslims in the UK and Europe

The University of Cambridge Centre of Islamic Studies invites applications from current Masters and PhD candidates to present their research on issues pertaining to Muslims in the UK and Europe, from any discipline. This online postgraduate symposium, taking place on Thursday 17 June 2021, will be a platform for students to present and exchange current research on any topic in this field in a dynamic forum. While historical or theoretical context is valuable, we invite papers also to present, analyse or interpret research findings, data or material. The symposium will take place online this year due to Covid. Participants are expected to attend the keynote speech and all sessions.

The keynote speech will be given by Dr H.A. Hellyer, senior associate fellow of the Royal Institute (RUSI) in London and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington DC. A visiting fellow at the Centre, Dr Hellyer’s talk will revolve around the Muslim-European presence, current and future challenges.

To apply please submit a 500-word abstract, with curriculum vitae outlining current research interests, to cis@cis.cam.ac.uk by 8 April 2021.

Successful candidates will be notified by 16 April 2021 and invited to submit draft papers of no more than 3000 words by 15 June 2021.
