CUMES: Announcing Undergraduate Workshop

DEADLINE: June 1st

As a part of MESA’s commitment to involving undergraduates in the proceedings of MESA’s annual meeting, the Committee for Undergraduate Middle East Studies is once again sponsoring an Undergraduate Research Workshop to take place during the 2018 conference in San Antonio, Texas.

The workshop is an opportunity for students in any academic discipline with a focus on the Middle East to present their research to other students and to get feedback and research advice from faculty facilitators. The workshop will conclude with a poster session open to all conference attendees. Students participating in the workshop are invited to attend the full MESA conference, gaining an exposure to the most recent research and experiencing the intellectual vibrancy of a professional academic gathering.

Paper proposals should be submitted by June 1, 2018. Applicants will be notified by June 30, 2018. Proposals should include an abstract and a letter of recommendation from a professor at the student’s home university commenting on the quality of the proposal and why the student would benefit from the workshop.

See the attached Call for Papers for more details about proposal requirements and due dates. The Call for Papers is also posted on MESA’s website:
