Call for Proposals: Junior Scholar Book Development Workshop 2021

The Project on Middle East Political Science is pleased to call for proposals for the 9th Annual Junior Scholars Book Development Workshop to be held at Yale University on November 12-13, 2021, conditions permitting.

Applicants should be post-PhD and pre-tenure and must have a complete book manuscript ready for circulation and discussion by October 1, 2021. Manuscripts should not simply be a dissertation project. Only first book projects will be considered.
