At the 2016 annual meeting in San Antonio, IQSA will host a session of Ph.D. student “lightning talks” as part of our Graduate Student Reception (Saturday, November 19, 11:45-12:45). These five-minute talks are meant to showcase the research of current Ph.D. students/candidates, and will be listed in the program book. Presentations should highlight research on a Ph.D. dissertation topic. Those already scheduled to present at IQSA/SBL/AAR are welcome to participate.

The “lightning talk” session is an excellent opportunity to showcase your research with other students and faculty in the field of Qurʾānic Studies.
