KnE Social Sciences / The Second Annual International Conference on Human Sciences (AICHS)

This collection contains selected papers from the 2nd Annual International Conference on Humanitarian Sciences (AICHS, 2019), held in Fallujah, Iraq, March 4-5, 2020. This event was hosted by the University of Fallujah.

Titled ‘Fallujah During Ottoman & the Iraqi Monarchy Eras’, this conference was based around the theme of the city itself, exploring both its rich historical and cultural symbolism and the political, philosophical and scientific contributions of eminent citizens.

This collection contains 42 peer-reviewed papers on a range of topics including the city’s religious schools and scholarship, ancient peoples and trade routes, architecture and infrastructure, and political and military developments under the rule of both the Ottoman Empire and Iraqi monarchy.

These papers will be of interest to academics, students and professionals researching or working on all aspects of Fallujah’s history in particular, as well as Iraq’s politics, religion and culture more generally.

Although established comparatively recently, the University of Fallujah is an active participant in the international academic community, fostering scholarly discussing and debate through a series of regional conferences.
