The 30th German Congress of Oriental Studies (Deutscher Orientalistentag) will be held on 24-28th September 2007 in Freiburg im Breisgau. The Orientalistentag is organized every three years by the German Oriental Society (Deutsche Morgenländische Gesellschaft, DMG).
At the same time, the European Association for Middle East Studies (EURAMES), the German Middle East Studies Association for Contemporary Research and Documentation (DAVO), and the British Association for Middle Eastern Studies (BRISMES) also invite to participate in their Annual Congress, which is held under the umbrella of the Orientalistentag.
Around 1000 participants are expected to come to the Orientalistentag. Roughly 20 sections (representing the various disciplines in Oriental studies) will be installed. The motto of the conference is “Oriental Studies in the 21st Century: Which Past — Which Future”.
The principal language of the Orientalistentag is German. Papers in English and French are welcome, but it will be advantageous if these papers are attached to a panel where all the papers are given in English or French.
