The MLA conference this year has a call for papers which mentions the Nights.
I'll see what I can cook up before the March 1 deadline although it centers on European Medieval Lit.
Here is the entire posting:
Subject: Call for Papers: Islamic Genealogies
Palimpsest: Islamic Genealogies of Medieval European Literature
Was Chaucer’s Parliament of Fowles a late manifestation of Attar’s work, Boccaccio’s Decameron of One Thousand and One Nights , or Dante’s epic of Muhammad’s Mi`raj? Comparatist reevaluations of literary antecedents.
Abstracts by 1 Mar to firstname.lastname@example.org
