Call for Proposals: Junior Scholars Book Development Workshop 2017

The Project on Middle East Political Science is pleased to call for proposals for its sixth annual Junior Scholars Book Development Workshop to be held at Princeton University on October 19 — 20, 2017.

Applicants must be post-PhD and pre-tenure and must have a complete book manuscript ready for circulation and discussion by September 1, 2017. 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.

To apply, please submit the below form by April 30, 2017* and email the following in a single PDF document titled your last name.

• Your CV
• A 2-3 page description of the project
• A chapter-length writing sample (preferably the introductory chapter) of the book manuscript
• Contact information for at least two academic references (including a dissertation chair)
