2009 Biannual International Forum on Asia-Middle East Studies Transcending Borders: Asia, Middle East, and the Global Community


October 16-17, 2009, Annapolis, Maryland, U.S.A. 


While the United States was deeply involved in negotiating peace between Israel and the Palestinians and fighting terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan, countries in East Asia and Southeast Asia have been quietly developing frequent economic, political, and cultural interaction with the Middle East. Countries such as China and Japan pay close attention to the Middle East because of their strong ties to the region. Indeed their roles in the Middle East have become so prominent that they should be acknowledged and closely observed. The “Transcending Borders: Asia, Middle East, and the Global Community” conference, hosted by the U.S. Naval Academy’s Center for Middle East and Islamic Studies, U.S. Asian Cultural Academy, the Shanghai International Studies University, and the Library of Congress Asian Division, aims to provide a platform for western and Asian scholars to converge and exchange views on major issues concerning the Middle East and its relationship with Asia, the U.S., and the rest of the world.


The 2009 Biannual International Forum on Asia-Middle East Studies plans to invite scholars with strong interest and specializations in Asia-Middle East relations to present their papers on the following suggested subjects:


Energy and environment

Economy and trade

Cross-regional relations 

Social/cultural perspectives


- This list is meant to suggest possible topics, although other topics are welcome if they establish their general relevance to the subject of the encounters between the global and local powers in the Middle East.


- Both broad theoretical studies and specific case studies are welcome. Paper proposals (no more than 200 words) & a 1-page biography are due by 1 May 2009, and should be submitted electronically to:
