The Middle East Beyond Borders (MEBB) workshop aims to foster an interdisciplinary community of scholars working on the past and present of the Middle East. It takes as its founding premise the idea that the “Middle East” as an object of inquiry must fundamentally engage notions of boundaries, mobility and transformation. Our goal is to offer a platform for collaboration and discussion to all Middle East scholars at Harvard, across a wide range of academic fields and disciplines.

Unless otherwise noted, all sessions take place from 6:00 - 7:30pm in Barker 114 (room confirmation pending). Kindly email  Johanes Makar at or Armaan Siddiqi at to RSVP and receive a draft of the paper prior to the workshop session.
