Open call to take part in Aula Árabe Universitaria 2

From April 17, 2020 until May 17, 2020

The call for university bachelor’s degree and graduate programs that wish to participate in the upcoming edition of Aula Árabe Universitaria is now open, and applications may be completed online until May 17.

All of the bachelor’s degree and graduate (Master’s degree and PhD) programs from universities in the Autonomous Region of Madrid are eligible to take part in the upcoming edition of Aula Árabe Universitaria (AAU2), planned for the academic year of 2020-21.

Those university programs that wish to be involved in the project by sending in their proposals for speakers may do so from April 17 through May 17, by using this online form. The registration must be performed by a professor or the program coordinator of the Master’s degree or PhD program, and that individual will become the liaison who coordinates participation in AAU2. The application must include the proper information on the university program that wishes to join AAU2, its calendar of classes and its proposed speakers (from 1 through 5, in order of preference).

Aula Árabe Universitaria is an annual inter-university program organized by Casa Árabe with the cooperation of the public universities in the Autonomous Region of Madrid. Its purpose is to promote knowledge about the Arab world and to complement the education given in the member university programs from a multidisciplinary perspective, offering students the chance to come into contact with relevant speakers and experts at the international level in different fields and areas related with the Arab world.

Holding Aula Árabe means that Casa Árabe will be carrying out the organization of various conferences throughout the academic year, during the regular evening schedule at 7:00 p.m., as proposed by the associated bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs, with contents which will be adapted to their curriculum and thematic needs.

At the first edition, held throughout the academic year of 2019-20 as a pilot program, 22 bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree and special degree programs from all four of Madrid’s public universities either took part or showed an interest in joining the project: eleven programs from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM), seven from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM), three from the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (URJC) and one from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M). Fourteen of these programs played an active role and had sessions assigned as part of the Aula Árabe Universitaria conference series held from September 30, 2019 through May 21, 2020.

For this next edition, we will once again be inviting the same programs to take part and submit proposals, while also opening up the call for participants publicly to include other public and private universities in the Autonomous Region of Madrid.
