US-Iran Relations Conference: Regional & Global Dynamics (call for papers)

MAY 19-21, 2005, Ankara, Turkey

** PROPOSAL DEADLINE: FEB. 25, 2005 **

The United States and the Iran have had severed diplomatic relationships and only limited contacts in the past quarter of century. Mutual suspicions and lack of communications between the two states and their respective citizens have increased following the rise of tensions in the post-9-11 world. To promote networking, interdisciplinary communications, and sharing of ideas and research findings on part of scholars, institutions, policy makers and citizens, the University of Utah (Middle East & Central Asia Conference Committee), the Middle East Technical University (METU-Ankara, Department of International Relations), and World Security Network are happy to announce the upcoming conference on US-Iran Relations in Ankara Turkey.

The conference is estimated to be composed of 24 topic-specific panels with as many as 100 paper presentations. There will also be two distinguished plenary presentations by renowned scholars on the conference theme. Specific panels will likely fall within the following general topics, but not necessarily be confined to them:

  • Historical Outlook and Analyses
  • Civil Society and Citizen Contacts
  • US and Iranian Hegemonies
  • Afghanistan
  • Iraq
  • The 'Other' in US and Iranian Media and Politics
  • Diaspora and Bi-nationals
  • Trade, Oil, Gas, and Foreign Investment
  • Nuclear Energy and WMD
  • Human Rights
  • Women and Minorities
  • Terrorism, War and State Violence
  • Palestine-Israel Impasse in Context of US-Iran Relations
  • Regional Cooperation and Organizations
  • The Role of the EU and European Powers
  • Prospects for Continuing Sanctions
  • Prospects for Diplomatic Relations
