The Midwest Association for Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies and Wayne State University has extended its call for papers for the MAMEIS Annual Conference at Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan on Friday, April 3, 2020. We welcome submissions from scholars based in the Midwest (broadly conceived) on this year's theme "Division and Unity in the Middle East and Islamic World." We are soliciting new research on any topic in Middle East and Islamic Studies, but especially encourage abstracts that align with our conference theme.

Please submit a one-page prospectus along with your name, title, and affiliation to
