2018 Middle East Studies Association (MESA) Annual Meeting
November 15, 2018 - November 18, 2018
Note: This is not an event by the UW-Madison Middle East Studies Program. Details of organizers are presented below.
Theme: “Without Boundaries: The Global Middle East, Then and Now”
Many of the problems that concern scholars of the Middle East transcend national and regional boundaries. Contemporary concerns about global warming, environmental degradation, migration and refugees, social movements, human rights and humanitarianism, global economic policy, intellectual networks and cultural exchange—both in their present and historical incarnations—can only be addressed fully if social scientists and humanists expand their vision beyond the constructed boundaries that have all too often constricted it. MESA welcomes paper and panel submissions in early 2018 that respond to this theme.
