Call for Workshop Presenters


The Middle East History and Theory (MEHAT) Workshop is excited to solicit your participation for the 2013-14 academic year. Its aim is to provide a forum for campus scholars to present new work, receive feedback, and generate discussions across the disciplines. As an area studies workshop, we are eager to hear from historians, anthropologists, sociologists, musicologists, linguists, theologians, and political scientists whose work engages with the Middle East, broadly defined to include South and Central Asia, the Mediterranean and North Africa, over a time span extending from Late Antiquity and the advent of Islam to the present. Drafts of dissertation proposals, chapters, and master’s theses are especially welcome, along with other works in progress. Papers are generally circulated a week prior to the workshop on the MEHAT listhost to encourage attendance and informed academic discussion. If interested, please send an email to

The workshop will meet on alternate Thursdays from 12:00 to 1:30 pm in Pick 218.
Best wishes,
