The Middle East Studies Association calls for submissions from members for its 53rd annual meeting, November 14-17, 2019, in New Orleans, LA.
All submissions must be made through myMESA, MESA’s membership and electronic submissions system. The system opens on January 1, 2019, and closes at midnight (Mountain Standard Time) on February 15, 2019.
Questions about the submission process are always welcome. Please email Mark Lowder at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2019 meeting does not have a theme. MESA is primarily concerned with the area encompassing Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan, Israel, Pakistan, and the countries of the Arab World from the seventh century to modern times. Other regions, including Spain, Southeastern Europe, China and the former Soviet Union, also are included for the periods in which their territories were parts of the Middle Eastern empires or were under the influence of Middle Eastern civilization. Comparative work is encouraged.
