Call For Papers

Please join us for the 4th Community College of Qatar (CCQ) Humanities Conference to be held Wednesday, March 29th through Thursday, March 30th 2017. Our conference theme is “A Nation in Transition.”

Transition is fundamentally about change. William Bridges (Transition: Making Sense of Life’s Changes, 2004), asserts that transition is a process that involves three stages: an ending, a neutral zone and in time, a new beginning. While the latter stage is ideal, most agree that transition is an unquestionable and undeniable force of such magnitude that it is capable of building or shattering nations. From the prolific changes in Post-Communist Europe to the Arab Spring to the ambitious pursuits of Qatar’s 2030 National Vision of Human, Social, Environmental and Economic Development, our world exists in a perpetual state of transition.
We yearn for transition because it moves us forward. It fosters development, growth, harmony, awareness and acceptance. And, at its best, it can produce profound transformations politically, economically and socially.

The purpose of this conference is to explore and examine the various challenges and successes of transition that countries have encountered and continue to encounter through topics such as, but not limited to, human capital, education, family, gender roles, tradition, religion, the media, government, globalization, the economy, the environment, differently-abled and disenfranchised persons. Even more importantly, this conference will examine lessons learned from past failures, identify strategies for successful transition, and help us recognize and acknowledge our roles and responsibilities to move all nations forward to a brighter future.

We invite and welcome scholarly interdisciplinary submissions (abstracts) rooted in the field of humanities from professionals and graduate students that pertain to issues relative to nations in transition. The abstracts should be between 250 to 500 words.

All submissions are due by January 30, 2017. Early submissions are recommended. Please send your proposals to: CCQHC2017@ccq.edu.qa. Further conference details and information will be posted on our website at www.ccq.edu.qa soon.
