The annual CARMEN open meeting brings together scholars and professionals from across the world in participatory and interactive formats: project development workshops; training and networking; the ‘Forum’ showcase for projects, institutions and research centres; and, just as importantly, opportunities for socializing.
This year’s annual meeting, originally planned to take place in Dublin at Trinity College on 1-2 September 2020, will do all of these things; due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however, it will do them online! We are introducing a series of virtual-friendly modifications to the CARMEN formats you are familiar with (or want to familiarize yourself with), and will be welcoming your input on how we can improve this format for a possible hybrid future, enabling people to participate in CARMEN’s international networks in new ways.
The CARMEN annual meeting always has a thematic strand: this year’s is Environment. A Plenary Round Table will take place during the meeting and will be accompanied on Twitter. We now invite proposals for the workshops, which will take place on 1 and 2 September between 2 and 4 pm GMT +1 in webinar format. The organiser of each workshop will be responsible for online hosting, and will provide a link together with a short description; advance registration (by 31 July 2020) will be necessary.

The NYU Abu Dhabi Research Institute invites scholars who wish to contribute to the vibrant research culture of NYUAD’s Saadiyat campus to apply for a residential fellowship, starting September 2021.
The Institute welcomes applications from scholars working in all areas of the Humanities related to the study of the Arab world, its rich literature and history, its cultural and artistic heritage, and its manifold connections with other cultures. This includes, among others, Islamic Intellectual History and Culture, any areas of particular relevance to the MENA region, as well as projects thematically connected to existing research projects and initiatives at NYUAD’s divisions of Arts & Humanities and Social Sciences (see https://nyuad.nyu.edu/en/research.html).
Both distinguished scholars with an established reputation and promising scholars who are at the beginning of their career can apply for a research fellowship. The program awards one-year senior fellowships and one- / two-year postdoctoral fellowships.
Each fellow receives a competitive stipend commensurate with experience, housing, health insurance, work/office space on campus, full access to NYUAD’s library facilities (with close connections to NYU’s main library in New York), research allowance, an opportunity to host a small workshop funded by the Research Institute, and support for travel to and from Abu Dhabi.
We expect successful candidates to commence their appointment on September 1, 2021, pending final approval.
The fellowship program is hosted by the NYU Abu Dhabi Research Institute. For more information, please visit:
Applications are due October 1, 2020.
