MESA - Middle East Studies Association

Upcoming Annual Meetings

Each fall, typically the week before Thanksgiving, MESA members gather in a different U.S. city for the association’s annual meeting. The meeting features panels and special sessions on a variety of topics related to Middle East studies. It is complemented by meetings of MESA's affiliated groups, an exciting 4-day film festival, a comprehensive book bazaar featuring the latest books and software in the field, and other informal events. The meeting provides an opportunity for friends and colleagues from a variety of disciplines to gather to share their common bond: the study of this important region of the world.
