The Middle East History and Theory (MEHAT) Workshop is delighted to solicit your participation for the 2012-13 academic year. The workshop meets on alternate Wednesdays from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. in 218 Pick Hall. Its aim is to provide a forum for campus scholars (emerging and otherwise) to present new work, receive feedback, and generate interesting and productive discussions across the disciplines. As an area studies workshop, we are eager to hear from historians, anthropologists, sociologists, musicologists, linguists, philosophers, theorists, and theologians whose work engages with the Middle East, broadly construed to include South and Central Asia, the Mediterranean, and Africa, over a time span extending from Late Antiquity and the advent of Islam to the present. Drafts of dissertation proposals, chapters, and theses are especially welcome, along with other works in progress. Papers are generally pre-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 email@example.com.
We look forward to hearing from you!
All the best,
Maddy Elfenbein and Carlos Grenier, 2012-13 MEHAT Coordinators
