IXth Syriac Symposium
VIIth Conference of Christian Arabic Studies
Lebanon, 20-25 September 2004
 The IXth Syriac Symposium and the VIIth conference on Christian Arab Studies will take place in Lebanon from Monday, September 20 to Saturday September 25, 2004, as decided in July 2000 in Sidney, Australia. The two events are organized jointly by the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik (Jounieh) and the CEDRAC of Saint Joseph University (Beirut).
 Participants should plan to arrive at Beirut airport on Sunday 19th September for the Syriac Symposium and Wednesday September 23rd for who want to participate only in the Conference on Christian Arab Studies.
 We would like to propose as a particular but non-exclusive theme for these two encounters: The dialogue of cultures.
 Please inform us, as soon as possible, of the title of your contribution. Please send email to both the addresses listed below. We would also like you to inform your colleagues and students of these two events; if they want to participate, we will extend an invitation to them.
