Course Description This course is open to Ph.D. students and advanced M.A. students conducting research on aspects of the modern history, culture, and politics of the Middle East and adjacent regions.  The course has two aims. The first is to provide an opportunity to read and engage with some of the most recent scholarship in the field, especially work published in the last five years, organized around a number of current academic debates. The second is to provide a seminar in which those preparing a master’s paper, M.Phil. examination list, PhD. Prospectus, or a term paper intended for publication can develop and present a draft of their work. We will choose readings to accompany each presentation, focusing on recent scholarship that informs or extends the issues addressed in the research. The colloquium will enable students to clarify and test the questions that shape their work and better situate them within current scholarship. The course is intended primarily for MESAAS students. Those from other departments are welcome, but require the permission of the instructor to enroll.
