A major part of Middle East Medievalists’ (MEM) mission is to raise the profile of medieval studies at MESA. As a MESA affiliate, we are able to offer MEM sponsorship to up to three medieval panels at each annual MESA meeting. MEM cannot offer financial support but the three selected panels will appear as MEM-sponsored panels on MESA program. We urge medievalists organizing panels at MESA 2018 to submit all the relevant material about their panels (title, participants, abstracts) by February 15, 2018 so the MEM board can consider them for MEM sponsorship. Please email your submissions or questions with regard to potential MEM sponsorship to MEM’s secretary, Alison Vacca (firstname.lastname@example.org).
