I'm working with a colleague to organize a panel for the 2021 Middle East Studies Association meeting. We're interested in crime (real and imagined) as a lens through which to view disruptions to dominant social, economic, and political orders, including as an opportunity to think about challenges to and tensions within imperial and colonial regimes in the Middle East, Islamic or European. Please see the brief description/call for abstracts below, and please feel free to share with any who might be interested!
