We are a group of scholars who are in the early stages of launching a new academic association that focuses on children and youth in the Middle East and North Africa.
If you have an interest in such an association and would like to be added to our listserv, please send your name and email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is a more detailed explanation of our association:
The Association of Middle East Children's and Youth Studies (AMECYS) is a private, non-profit, non-political, international association for anyone with an interest in the study of children and youth in the Middle East, North Africa and diasporic communities. Through interdisciplinary programs, publications, and services, AMECYS promotes excellent scholarship, facilitates global academic exchange, and enhances public understanding about Middle Eastern children and youth in diverse times and places.
Many thanks for your attention.
