CALL FOR PAPERS: Liberalism and Its Paradoxes in the Arabian Peninsula.

The University of Exeter’s Centre for Gulf Studies invites papers for the 2020 annual Gulf Conference on the theme of Liberalism and Its Paradoxes. Within the last decade, a plethora of voices from around the world have emerged to critique liberalism as the regnant ideology of the globe. Rash or relevant, these critiques agree on the unfolding ideological collapse of some of liberalism’s core tropes, such as multiculturalism and freedom of movement, both human and capital. Meanwhile, the regimes of the Arabian Peninsula are currently in the midst of a self-induced reincarnation into precisely the liberal, ‘moderate’, and free-market social orders that have lost currency elsewhere. This year’s Conference takes these changes as an opportunity to ask how we map such ideological change in the Arabian Peninsula.

How to apply

Interested parties are asked to submit paper proposals (abstracts of 300-400 words), as well as a full CV including affiliation and contact details, before 6 April 2020 to gulfconference@exeter.ac.uk.
Candidates whose abstracts are accepted will be notified by 27 April 2020.
