The Middle East History and Theory (MEHAT) Workshop is accepting submissions for the Winter 2018 Quarter. 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, scholars of religion, 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 if interested.  We have a few slots remaining for the Winter Quarter. Please note all dates are Wednesdays, between 3:00 and 4:30 PM:

January 24th
March 7th
If none of these dates work for you, you can also present in the Spring Quarter. Please email  and we can arrange a slot for you then.
With best wishes, 
2017-18 MEHAT workshop coordinator
