Call for Papers Winter 2022

Dear MEHAT attendees,

We had a great Fall schedule of workshops that hosted graduate students from the Chicago area and visiting faculty on topics as wide as Egyptian Libraries, Mughal Architecture, and charity in modern Lebanon. Thank you for your contribution to a successful Fall quarter.  We hope to continue this momentum in Winter.

We already have a few scheduled speakers but we need a few more workshops to continue providing a space for graduate students and faculty to present work, receive feedback, and generate discussion. Drafts of dissertation proposals, chapters, and master’s thesis are especially welcome along with other works in progress. Papers are circulated a week prior to the workshop listserv to encourage attendance and foster informed discussion.

The MEHAT Workshop invites graduate students and faculty from all relevant departments. We are eager to hear from historians, literary scholars, anthropologists, sociologists, political scientists, musicologists, art historians, scholars of religion whose work engages with the Middle East, defined broadly to include the Mediterranean, North and West Africa, South and Central Asia over a span of time extending from Late Antiquity and the advent of Islam to the present.

Please email abstracts of no more than 300 words to by January 3.

Elif Bozgan

2021-2022 MEHAT Workshop Coordinator
