MENA Graduate Student Group

The graduate student branch of the Middle East and North African Studies Program seeks to advance the scholarly interests of Northwestern graduate students pursuing research on any topic in the MENA region. Open to all students in Northwestern's graduate and professional programs, MENA Grad meets at least once a quarter. It hosts roundtable discussions, professionalization workshops and other events in conjunction with the MENA Studies program.  Students interested in joining can email the current co-chairs to be added to the MENA Grad listserv.
