Held every four years since 1991, the North American Syriac Symposium brings together university professors, graduate students, and scholars from the United States and Canada as well as from Europe, the Middle East, and India. The Symposium offers a unique opportunity for exchange and discussion on a wide variety of topics related to the language, literature, and cultural history of Syriac Christianity, which chronologically spans from the first centuries CE to the present day and geographically extends from Syriac Christianity's homeland in the Middle East, India, China, and the worldwide Diaspora.
Information about the Syriac Symposium will be posted on this site.
