Department of Middle Eastern Studies
Graduate Research Seminars
MES Graduate Research Seminars are organised by graduate students of the DMES with the aim of fostering academic collaboration and interdisciplinary discussion among our graduates. MPhil and PhD students of the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies are invited to present their work at the seminars. Priority will be given to the DMES graduates, who will be encouraged to present their research in progress and receive feedback from peers and participants from other related departments. Graduates of other departments are also welcome to present their research on the Middle East, North Africa, Central Asia and Caucasus. MES Research Seminars are organised twice a term, each seminar consisting of two 20 minute presentations followed by 10 minute Q&A session. The seminars end with refreshments and informal discussions.
Unless otherwise noted, seminars take place from 4pm to 5pm in Rooms 8 & 9 at the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies (Sidgwick site) followed by refreshments in the FAMES Common Room.
