Freie Universität Berlin, Germany

Extended Deadline: 31st Dec 2021

The 34th Deutscher Orientalistentag (DOT) is organized by the Deutsche Morgenländische Gesellschaft and will take place at the Freie Universität Berlin from 12th to 17th September 2022.

The submission deadline for abstracts is 31.12.2021 and 01.10.2021 for panel proposals. We welcome early abstract submissions.

“The DOT was first organized by the Deutsche Morgenländische Gesellschaft (DMG) in Leipzig in 1921. The DMG is the oldest association of German Orientalists. Its members dwell mostly on languages and cultures of the Middle East, parts of Asia, Oceanica and Africa. The DOT has since been established as the largest and most important event of German cultural studies on Africa and Asia. The 34th DOT at the Freie Universität Berlin marks its 100th anniversary. Participation is open to all scholars, students and members of the public worldwide and does not require membership in the DMG. The languages of the conference are all common scholarly languages.”
