This week we released POMEPS Studies 15, Islam and International Order. As part of our Islam in a Changing Middle East initiative, this collection of memos is the product of a collaborative workshop with the Transatlantic Academy that brought together a diverse group of scholars from political science, religious studies and history. The essays tackle major theoretical debates about how we frame and conceptualize the complex relationships among Islam, identity, ideology and the state. Authors also examine Islamist movements across the region from the AKP to the Muslim Brotherhood, with several scholars presenting nuanced analysis on the Islamic State. POMEPS director Marc Lynch provides an excellent overview of the collection and presents his own framework for contesting  the Caliphate this week on the Monkey Cage blog.

Also don’t miss these new opportunities: 

The Asfari Institute for Civil Society and Citizenship at AUB is calling for papers on Labor Movements and Unions and the Quest for Social Justice in the Arab World.

Hamilton College Government Department is now accepting applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in Middle East politics

If you will be at the APSA annual meeting in San Francisco, RSVP now for the POMEPS reception to connect with other Middle East scholars.
