MEHAT Workshop Winter 2022 Schedule

Dear all,

We are very excited to share the Winter schedule of the Middle East History and Theory Workshop. This quarter, we will have the online option for all of the presentations but we would like to maintain the in-person element as much as possible since we realized how refreshing it was to see fellow grad students and faculty. For the hybrid events, we will meet on Wednesdays in Pick 218 with those who prefer to join us in person. The Zoom link will be sent out for those who would like to join us virtually. As always papers will be sent to the listserv prior to each event. We are looking forward to another lively quarter.
