Museums in Arabia Conference

Serena Iervolino-585

We are delighted to announce that CMCI will be hosting the international Museums in Arabia conference here at King’s in 2019. It’s part of an established series that operates as a collaborative network for exploring the theory and practice of museums and heritage in the Arabian Peninsula.

The conference will be investigating how different cultural, political, social and economic actors are involved in and shape cultural practices within museums, arts and cultural heritage institutions? And how is this key question addressed within the rapidly developing and complex landscape of the Arabian Peninsula?

The event is jointly organised by CMCI’s Dr. Serena Iervolino and Dr. Sarina Wakefield of Zayed University, United Arab Emirates, who also chairs the series.

Supported by both King’s and CMCI, the conference takes place from 26-28 June 2019. If you are interested in presenting a paper at the conference, abstracts of up to 400 words should be sent to: Further details are available from Dr. Serena Iervolino (pictured) at
