CFP: Soliciting Co-Panelists for "Crime in the Archives" Middle East Studies Association Panel (Monreal, 28-31 October 2021)

Dear All,

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!

CFP: Crime and Its Investigation in Imperial Contexts: Africa and the Middle East (International Workshop, Ben Gurion University of the Negev)

Criminal activity and its investigation hold a special value to historians. They bring to the forefront debates on important issues such as race, gender and class, and expose moral assumptions.
