Following three successful previous editions, the GIS (National Scientific Network) MOMM (Middle East and Muslim Worlds) is organising the 4th Middle-East and Muslim World Studies Conference on 28-29-30 June 2021 in the premises of the Arts, Languages and Humanities Faculty of Aix-Marseille Université. This event is organized in collaboration with IREMAM, IDEMEC, CHERPA, IMAF, Institut Sociétés en Mutation en Méditerranée and in partnership with IISMM (Institute of Studies of Islam and Muslim World Societies) and SEMOMM (Society of Studies on the Middle-East and Muslim Worlds).
Researchers and university teachers (from PhD level upwards) are invited to send their proposals for thematic panels no later than 1 July 2020
The themes of the panels should fall under one or more fields in the humanities and social sciences (anthropology, archaeology and history of art, law, economics, geography, history, islamology and religious sciences, linguistics, literature, philosophy, sociology, political science), in a global or regional perspective. As in previous years, the congress is an invitation to move beyond disciplinary and institutional compartmentalization, by bringing together contributors from diverse backgrounds, working in France and around the world. Collective proposals from young researchers, doctoral and post-doctoral students are encouraged.

UNIMED finds interesting this initiative as it considers very important to give Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts a crucial role in the Euro-Mediterranean Education and Research cooperation programmes as a tool to foster a more sustainable development of the Mediterranean basin and its populations’ resilience.
