Deadline Extended: International Winter School 2023

The ACRPS calls for applications for its fourth International Winter School. The Winter School is a 10-day annual forum that seeks to provide an in-depth and critical look at selected topics in the broader study of the Middle East and North Africa. It provides an opportunity for participants to network with international scholars, gain substantive knowledge and insight, and receive feedback from respected scholars. The theme of the fourth annual Winter School centres on “Political Culture Revisited: How Values Drive Politics”. We invite PhD researchers and early career scholars working on this topic to apply, especially those whose work applies the concept to the Arab region. This will be an in-person event, to be held in January 2023 at the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, Doha, Qatar.
