PU Middle Eastern Studies Seminar

Launched in Fall 2009, the Princeton University Middle Eastern Studies Seminar provides scholars of the Middle East from across various Princeton University (PU) departments with a platform for exchanging ideas across disciplinary boundaries. Participants come from the departments of anthropology, art history, comparative literature, history, Near Eastern Studies, politics, sociology, religion, and the Woodrow Wilson School; to make this seminar as inclusive as possible, areas covered include the Middle East and North Africa as well as other Islamic communities and countries. The seminar meets four times a semester. PU professors and post-doctoral researchers present a paper; discussion is open to PU graduate and undergraduate students who specialize in the Middle East as well as to the PU community in general and the public.

Schedule: The seminar will not be held in 2013-14.
