This workshop provides the opportunity for PhD students and early career researchers to meet the Editor in Chief of Contemporary Levant, Dr Sarah Irving, hear more about the journal and discuss opportunities for publication.

The workshop is designed for individuals who have not published in peer-reviewed academic journals in English before, who would like to ask questions or who have published in Arabic previously, and who would like to try submitting work to English-language publications. We will start by reviewing some key pointers on how to prepare an article for submission, and some of the main mistakes made by new scholars. We will then open the floor to questions and discussions of your experiences in academic publishing. Senior researchers are welcome to apply to attend to share their experiences. Up to 20 places are available.

Contemporary Levant is an international peer-reviewed, multi disciplinary journal of the Council for British Research in the Levant (CBRL). The journal publishes original research on contemporary politics, society and culture in the Levant region, its diasporas and neighbouring countries that have a clear relevance to it. The journal aims to foster research agendas that engage with and reflect current and emerging issues in the region. With the aim of maintaining a balance between empirical research and theoretical developments, the journal welcomes scholarly contributions from various disciplines including: anthropology, sociology, politics, religion and theology, cultural studies, modern history, social geography, media, film studies and literature.

The working language of the Workshop is English.
