MESA panel on Biography & History in the Middle East: looking for panelists

James Meyer's picture

Dear Colleagues,

I am putting together a panel for the 2023 MESA conference that I’m calling “Biography, History, and the Middle East: New Approaches.” I plan on presenting material relating to my upcoming book on Nâzım Hikmet, and would like to find two other presenters to join me on the panel. Ideally, panelists would be: a) doing original research with a biographical component, and b) using biography to write history. I’m open to proposals relating to any time period/region/country from the Middle East. Please specify what is new and/or different about your approach. 

Looking forward to hearing from interested parties,
