A Glimpse to the First International Conference on Eritrean Studies (ICES)

The International Conference on Eritrean Studies specifically aims to revive scholarly discussions on Eritrea and sketch ways of strengthening academic interest and activities related to the country by engaging scholars from inside and outside Eritrea. It is the first step towards the institutionalization of Eritrean studies, besides being a direct challenge to so called “Experts” who writes acedemic research on Eritrea, with out setting foot to the country, that lacks objective data and facts.

By Mela Ghebremedhin,

African Studies, Chinese studies, American Studies… All these scholarly well-established research areas have so far been incomplete as Eritrean Studies were missing from the picture. The amount of academic research is tremendous, featuring important and rich topics, including archeology, energy, politics, and the humanities, amongst others.

Hence, engaging scholars from inside and outside Eritrea comes at a very important juncture and it is more than ever the occasion to create an academic gathering in the country. Accordingly, 2016 holds much promise for Eritrea’s academic world with the launch of the First International Conference on Eritrean Studies (ICES), to be held July 20-22 at the Asmara Palace Hotel.
