It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the fourth annual student conference sponsored by the Middle East and Islamic Consortium of British Columbia (MEICON-BC). This year we have twenty-six papers divided into eight diverse panels with students from nine different universities and colleges: Simon Fraser University, University of Victoria, University of British Columbia, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, University of Alberta, Temple University, Emory University, Florida State University, and King’s College London. This is a sign of the stature of the conference and reinforces the growing strength and breadth of the field of Middle East and Islamic Studies throughout the province.
It is a delight for our Centre to host the student conference at our Vancouver campus.
