The Twelfth Annual Conference of the Central & Inner Asia Seminar

Recommended Posts

Dear Colleagues,

The Twelfth Annual Conference of the Central & Inner Asia Seminar (CIAS 2007) will be held at the University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in the Croft Chapter House on May 15-17, 2007.

The proceedings of the conference will be published in due course in "Toronto Studies in Central and Inner Asia". Volume 8, the papers from CIAS 2005, will be available before the upcoming conference.

The theme of this year's gathering is "The Exploitation of the Landscape of Central and Inner Asia, Past, Present and Future." Scholars from a wide range of disciplines are invited to submit proposals for papers.

The time allowance for any presentation is 20 minutes. Please include the title, a one-page summary and a short copy of your curriculum vitae and send them, by email, to me at gillian.long@utoronto.ca or to Professor Michael Gervers at gervers@chass.utoronto.ca

The deadline for submissions is December 1, 2006 and those selected will be notified by email as soon as possible thereafter.

We regret that we do not have the financial resources to help with any transportation or accommodation costs. However we will do our best to expedite visa applications and offer hospitality during the conference.

We look forward to receiving many interesting proposals and to hosting another stimulating and enjoyable conference in Toronto in May.

Please forward this message to anyone else who may be interested. For further information see www.utoronto.ca/cias The website will be updated regularly as more information becomes available.

Sincerely

Gillian Long

Administrative Co-ordinator for CIAS

Dear Friend of CIAS,

By now you should have received the Call for Papers for CIAS 2007 on May 15 -17, 2007 on the subject of The Exploitation of the Landscape of Central and Inner Asia: Past, Present and Future. We very much hope that this theme will prove to be as rewarding and stimulating as the Silk Road was for CIAS 2005. The proceedings of that conference will soon be published as Toronto Studies in Central and Inner Asia, vol. 8.

We were very heartened by the many messages of concern received from our friends last year, when plans for CIAS 2006 were suspended because of forces beyond our control. It is good to know that so many of you – participants in past meetings, researchers in the area and other friends and supporters of CIAS activities - share our deep interest in the region.

In order to enhance the quality of the 2007 conference, we are mounting a campaign to raise money to enable us to assist presenters from the region, and others, who would otherwise not be able to attend, to participate in the meeting. We also hope to improve both our web and print publications.

We hope that you, as a friend of CIAS, can help in that process. Can you suggest names of individuals, companies or other organizations that might be interested in joining the CIAS community and indeed might be willing to invest in it, by way of a financial donation to CIAS?

Such a donation would, of course, be tax-deductible in Canada and, via the Buffalo office of the University of Toronto, in the USA. We will provide recognition, on the website, in our program and in publications such as the conference Proceedings, for all donors.

Please take a moment now to send us names and contact information, for anyone or any organization you can recommend that we approach. Thank you for your time and trouble. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.

Michael Gervers Gillian Long

P.S. Of course, we would be delighted if you yourself could make a donation (payable to the U of T, memo: CIAS). It would be a solid investment in fostering knowledge and appreciation of the people, cultures and countries of Central and Inner Asia. Thanks again.
