Educational Resources

The Middle East Studies Program at UW-Madison strives to generate greater interest and knowledge about the Middle East and North Africa, and to shape the public’s understanding of the socio-economic, political, historical, and cultural realities of the Middle East, and their connections to the global context. By drawing on the expertise of scholars and specialists at UW-Madison and beyond, MESP provides accurate and up-to-date resources and supports outreach activities and lectures for K-12 and post-secondary educators, state and local government, businesses, community groups, the media, and the wider public.

Upon request, the MESP can also provide academic and cultural speakers for schools and civic groups to expand knowledge about the Middle East. Please feel free to contact the Middle East Studies Director Nevine El Nossery at with questions about opportunities.
