The conference (under the scientific auspices of the Algerian Chemical Society, Société Algérienne de Chimie, SAC, in association with FASC, the Federation of African Societies of Chemistry) and IUPAC, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, wishes to emphasize the roles of chemistry education for development and for sustainable development in the Maghreb region and in Africa, by offering an ideal opportunity for sharing experiences among chemistry educators across the African continent and with specialists from other continents.
The Department of Gender Studies and Islamic Studies of the University of Zurich is organizing the first workshop of the Gender in University and Society (GENiUS) network on “Concepts that Matter! Terminologies of Women and Gender in Transnational Perspective”. GENiUS is an informal Swiss-Arab Network of academics specialized in the field of Gender Studies in and on the Arab region that aims at fostering scientific exchange on the levels of research, teaching and institution building.
Now more than ever, gender as an analytical concept is being heavily contested from diverse quarters inside as well as outside academia. The panel discussion addresses key questions of how to teach gender as critical theory in the light of current societal and political tensions on the one hand and institutional constraints inside the university on the other hand. How can we teach “critique”? What does teaching gender mean in terms of methods and topics? And how can we engage in critical research and teaching while responding to societal expectations as to relevant output and knowledge transfer?

The inverted pyramid paradigm? Genesis, institutions, strategies and reception
Politique Américaine, a political science journal published in French on US domestic politics and international strategies launches a call for papers for its special issue on: "American Public Diplomacy in the Middle-East: the inverted pyramid paradigm? Genesis, Institutions, Strategies and Receptions". Next to its impact on governments, public diplomacy is seen as a diplomatic practice aiming at directly or indirectly influencing civil societies. It encompasses all "seductive" strategies that a State implements towards the public opinions of another state or region. The growing importance of this idea highlights the necessity for the main players of international relations to maintain a multi-level dialogue with foreign civil societies in order to anticipate political and social developments initiated by other players than the State itself.
Special Issue of the Journal of Lesbian Studies
The multiple configurations of same-sex practices and relationships across the African continent, alongside the problematic notion of homosexual, “lesbian,” and “queer” identities in the African context, have been addressed by various scholarly publications in the past couple of decades. Yet same-sex interactions, relationships, and politics between African women have not garnered significant attention either in feminist/queer studies or in African studies, and remain largely unrepresented in academic writings. This special issue of the Journal of Lesbian Studies proposes to fill this scholarly gap by exploring this topic from a variety of cultural and disciplinary perspectives. Contributions by scholars on the African continent are particularly welcome.

The Cordoba Foundation of Geneva within its NAWAT program invites applications for two Action-Research papers from scholars involved in policy research connected to conflict transformation issues in the MENA region. The Action-Research papers aim at producing a collectively shared understanding of conflicts at the intersection of religion and politics and at identifying entry points for potential peace promotion initiatives. The Action-Research Papers will focus on: 1. "Dialogue processes in the MENA region"; 2. "The impact of the war on terror on the MENA region"
Articulations of Subjectivity and Objectivity in the Modern Middle East, North Africa, South and Southeast Asia
International Summer Academy, 11-19 September 2014 at the Orient-Institut Beirut. This Summer Academy offers early-career scholars an opportunity to follow up on the debates about modernity, its preconditions and its aftermath by focusing on the multifarious processes in which societies outside Europe have adopted, translated, rejected or produced the global, the modern and tradition since the seventeenth century. It places a specific focus on the notions of subjectivity and objectivity as discursive practices which are intrinsically linked to each other.
Beyond Standardization: Professionel Dybnamics and Challenges
Arab countries are confronted, like other countries, to the pressure of standardization, but each one of them is responding from the back ground of its particular history. In such a framework, accounting professions have developed, are regulated, have built professional organizations and training institutions, and are now pressed to adopt international standards. International audit firms tend to impose their methods and model with the expansion of transnational corporation, the multiplication of joint ventures and franchised colmpanies. Beyond cultural gaps, historical evolution and political-economic features, reforms are being designed universally, under the pressure of the World Bank. A better understanding of the accounting profession, of practitioners aims and stakes, can point a way forward. The aim of this project is to discuss these issues in the Arab countries, and to contribute by so doing to a new vision of what is at stake in the recent upheavals they have witnessed.
23rd World Congress of Political Science
Call for Papers of RC 13 Panel. The International Political Science Association will hold its 23rd World Congress in Montreal, Canada, from July 19 to 24, 2014. The following panel is part of the Research Committee on Democratization in Comparative Perspective panels (RC13).

The conference will host keynote lectures, plenary sessions and different workshops concerning the anthropology of Morocco.
This conference is organized by the Arab Educational Information Network Shamaa and the Lebanese Association for Educational Studies and will be held in November 2013 in Beirut, Lebanon. The conference's objective is to provide a platform for educational researchers to present their perspectives on the current state of research studies in graduate programs in education and to raise questions regarding the quality of these studies. Papers presented will be subject to peer review process to be eligible for publication in the refereed conference proceedings. We hope that this conference will help capture the current practices in MA and PHD programs in education in the Arab countries, and will allow for a rich professional dialogue among its participants toward developing ideas and recommendations for improving these programs as well as the quality of their graduates and the studies they produce.
Saint-DenisLa guerre d’indépendance algérienne, en tant qu’événement fondateur majeur de l’après-seconde guerre mondiale, peut constituer, en termes de « générations », un espace-temps bien défini et homogène. Dès lors, il est légitime de mieux comprendre et d’interroger la nouveauté des paradigmes d’une génération de chercheurs inscrits dans un champ de recherche en construction. Peut-on déceler des ruptures ou des continuités dans les objets, les sujets, les méthodes, les approches macro et micro-historiques ? Quelle place les sources ont-elles dans ces travaux ? Existe-t-il des changements entre les travaux qui se veulent plus larges et exhaustifs et ceux qui se fondent sur des aspects plus localisés ? Quels sont les déplacements de paradigmes explicatifs que l’on peut observer ? Cette nouvelle génération évite-t-elle encore les présupposés idéologiques liés à une mémoire militante ? Au-delà des résultats et conclusions des travaux, le colloque devra aussi mettre en exergue les méthodes, les matériaux, les perspectives d’enquêtes engagés. Une attention particulière sera accordée aux propositions des doctorants et jeunes chercheurs.
ParisConférence internationale du 24 au 27 juin 2012, coorganisée par le CEDEJ, Sciences Po Paris, et Kuwait Program. Un an et demi après leur déclenchement, les révolutions arabes présentent un bilan hasardeux : en Tunisie, en Égypte et en Libye, où les anciens dirigeants ont été chassés du pouvoir par le soulèvement populaire, le paysage politique reste incertain. Au Yémen une transition inaccomplie s'est mise en place, au Bahrein le soulèvement a été étouffé, et la Syrie s'enfonce dans une guerre civile où l'opposition démocratique est prise entre la sanglante répression du pouvoir et la montée en puissance des éléments jihadistes.
