2017-2018 Call for Papers

The Middle East History and Theory (MEHAT) Workshop is accepting submissions for the 2017-18 academic year. We aim to provide a forum for graduate students to present new work, receive feedback, and generate discussion across disciplines. We are eager to hear from historians, anthropologists, sociologists, musicologists, linguists, theologians, and political scientists whose work engages with the Middle East, defined broadly to include the Mediterranean, North and West Africa, and South and Central Asia, over a span of time 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. Professors are also encouraged to present their recent work. Papers are generally circulated a week prior to the workshop on the MEHAT listserv to encourage attendance and informed academic discussion. 

Please email abstracts of no more than 300 words to mehat.workshop@uchicago.edu if interested. Our Autumn meeting dates are tentatively scheduled for:

October 4 
October 18 

November 1

November 15

November 29 (reserved)

Furthermore, we have dates for Winter and Spring chosen. If you would like to present then, please let me know and I can inform you of them. The workshop will meet on alternate Wednesdays from 3:00 to 4:30 PM in Pick 218. There will always be food & beverages. 
With best wishes, 
2017-18 MEHAT workshop coordinator
