Dear Friends, Colleagues, Readers:

Time: 9:00-10:30 pm

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 new JadMags from Tadween Publishing: 


What is Political Economy?

Gaza in Context 


Please visit us at our two book exhibit booths (#14-15) at the MESA Book Bazaar and discover all things ASI!
