Association for Gulf and Arabian Peninsula Studies (AGAPS)
The Association for Gulf and Arabian Peninsula Studies is a scholarly association. Our objectives are to promote high standards of scholarship and instruction, to facilitate collaboration among scholars and academic institutions, to encourage fieldwork and to mentor graduate students. AGAPS is multi-disciplinary and defines its area of study broadly to include the countries of the Arabian Peninsula, inclusive of the transnational flow of people, material and ideas across the Gulf, Red Sea and Indian Ocean.
AGAPS is dedicated to innovative research agendas, high standards of scholarship and instruction, new networks of collaboration, the promotion of fieldwork in the GAP, the integration of promising graduate students and diverse membership in gender, discipline, age, location and area expertise. AGAPS hopes to encourage research agendas that are fresh and nuanced, both in theory and empiricism.
