About the working group

Attempts to understand the variant paths of modernity in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), and the relationship of the region to Europe and the United States, have produced a new body of scholarship focusing on the history of the environment, medicine, space, belonging, and related subjects. Intersecting with studies on religion and colonialism, this seminar aims to provide an opportunity to share empirical research and theoretical framings in order to push forward scholarly debate on the MENA region.
