Moot on American Studies at Quaid-i-Azam University

Islamabad, Oct 26: Rais Ahmad Khan Memorial American Studies Conference being organised by Area Study Centre for Africa, North and South America, Quaid-i-Azam University, is starting here today (Friday) at the Earth Sciences auditorium.

The three-day 10th conference this year is dedicated to Dr Rais Ahmad Khan, the founder director of the centre who died last year. Dr Rais who also served in the Foreign Office had a PhD from California University at Berkley and was a dedicated, committed and paternal figure and all the old students, faculty and staff take him in high esteem and recall him with nostalgia. The auditorium at the ASC was dedicated to him when the centre moved to its new location in the Shahdara Campus some years ago.

Dr Atta-ur-Rahman, Chairman Higher Education Commission, will inaugurate the conference while the Canadian High Commissioner will be the chief guest in the closing session on Sunday, which will be held at a hotel for security reasons.

Dr Rukhsana Qamber, the Director, and Dr Noman Sattar, Assistant Professor of the Centre, are moving spirits behind the conference.

Every year the conference brings together experts on the Western Hemisphere and scholars from the region and beyond to discuss themes like American history and culture, politics, society and literature.

Lately there is more interest in Americas foreign relations and bilateral relations. The conference generates considerable interest among academics, policy-makers and students. Students of literature get an opportunity to meet and hear scholars speak about different themes and trends of American literature.

This year's conference has already generated a lot of interest in academic circles. Besides scholars coming from Pakistani academic institutions, students from local universities and Azad Kashmir are also participating. The News
