The American Institute for Maghrib Studies (AIMS) is seeking proposals for its annual conference for 2023, with ideas for 2024 and 2025 welcome. The annual AIMS conference is a signature event that brings together delegations of scholars from the US, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and occasionally individual scholars from other countries, as appropriate.

AIMS members interested in proposing a theme with resonance across the countries of the Maghrib are encouraged to submit a formal proposal for the 2023 conference by September 19, 2022; ideas and proposals for 2024 and 2025 conferences are also welcome.
