Arab Studies Institute Reception and Knowledge Production Project Launch at MESA

Dear Friends, Colleagues, Readers, 

It is with great pride that we invite you to join us at MESA-Boston for our Arab Studies Institute’s Reception and Launch of the Knowledge Production Project, on Friday at 9 pm (info below), at the main MESA conference hotel. 

ASI-KPP Reception:
Knowledge Production Project 
Launching Reception

Date: Friday, November 18th
Time: 9:00-10:30 pm
Location: Fourth Floor, Salon D, MESA Main Hotel

We would like to thank all those who contributed to this and the various projects we are about to launch, feature, and/or celebrate at MESA, not least the Knowledge Production Project, which will go live on Friday (in Beta form).

We will also be celebrating the publication of ASJ’s new Fall Issue, the publication of Roger Owen’s memoirs, A Life in Middle East Studies, from Tadween Publishing, and the launch of the new website/platform for our Status/الوضع audio magazine, which will go live also on Friday (in Beta form).

We are also releasing two JadMags on “What is Political Economy” and “Gaza in Context” from Tadween Publishing.

Moreover, please visit us at our two book exhibit booths that will showcase all things ASI (Booths 14 & 15).

For a full listing of Panels that feature Jadaliyya Editors or ASI team members, visit this post.

If all else fails, joins us at the official MESA party and dance off all kinds of anxieties and bad news from the region, and, now, from the land of the free! (Saturday at 9 pm) 

See you all soon.
ASI/Jad Team
