The call for papers of the Sixth Finnish Colloquium of Middle East and North African Studies has been extended till 29 August. The colloquium will be held on 9–10 December 2021 in Helsinki, Finland.

The multidisciplinary colloquium focuses on the boundaries, intersections, and collisions between different research traditions in Middle Eastern and North African studies. We welcome presentations, panels, and roundtables on both the historical and the contemporary Middle East. 

Also students are encouraged to apply with presentations based on their theses. 

The deadline for the submission of panel and roundtable proposals and individual abstracts is 29 August 2021. Further instructions and the web form can be found on the web page of the Finnish Institute in the Middle East ( 

The colloquium can be participated remotely. We particularly wish to have proposals for pre-organized panels from the remote participants.
