57th Annual Meeting of the Middle Eastern Studies Association, Montréal, November 2–5, 2023

The Middle East Studies Association calls for submissions from members for its 57th annual meeting to be held in Montréal, Québec, Canada from November 2–5, 2023, at the Palais des congrès de Montréal. 

MESA is primarily concerned with the area encompassing Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan, Israel, Pakistan, and the countries of the Arab world (and their diasporas) 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. The 2023 meeting does not have a theme.

MESA membership is a requirement to submit a proposal.
