Call for Proposals: Junior Scholar Book Development Workshops 2022-2023

The Project on Middle East Political Science is pleased to call for proposals for the POMEPS Junior Scholar Book Development Workshops to be held in a virtual format throughout the academic year 2022-2023.

Applicants should be post-PhD and pre-tenure and must have a complete book manuscript ready for circulation and discussion 6 weeks before the scheduled workshop. Manuscripts should not simply be a dissertation project. Only first book projects will be considered.

Each manuscript will be discussed in depth by at least two senior colleagues. The goal of the discussion is to prepare the manuscript for submission to an appropriate press. Research can focus on any aspect of the contemporary politics of the broader Middle East. Scholars from the MENA region and traditionally underrepresented institutions are particularly encouraged to apply.

To apply, please submit your application here.


Before submitting your information, please prepare a single PDF to upload with your application

  • Your CV
  • A 2-3 page description of the project
  • A chapter-length writing sample (preferably the introductory chapter) of the book
  • 3-5 senior scholars who you would like to discuss your work
