The Project on Middle East Political Science is pleased to call for proposals for a Junior Scholars Book Development Workshop to be held at Yale University on October 24 – 25, 2014. Applicants may be at any career stage prior to tenure, but must have a complete book manuscript ready for circulation and discussion by August 1, 2014. Junior scholars at the conference will have their complete dissertation or book manuscripts discussed in depth by at least two 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 by 5:00 pm April 1, 2014 to firstname.lastname@example.org in one PDF document:
- 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)
Please contact Mary Casey at email@example.com or 202.994.7689 with questions.
