The Project on Middle East Political Science is pleased to call for proposals for a Junior Scholars Research Conference to be held at Yale University on October 5, 2012. Applicants may be advanced graduate students or PhDs who have not yet been awarded tenure. Junior scholars at the conference will have their advanced-stage dissertation or book manuscripts discussed in depth by invited senior colleagues with an eye toward preparing the work for publication. Research can focus on any aspect of the politics of the broader Middle East.
To apply please send:
- chapter-length writing sample (preferably the introductory chapter of the dissertation/book manuscript)
- list of 3 to 5 senior scholars from whom you most would like feedback (including at least 2 who are not primarily Middle East specialists)
- contact information for at least two academic references (including a dissertation chair)
All materials should be sent via email to POMEPS c/o firstname.lastname@example.org by July 31, 2012.
