MENA Graduate Student Community
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 related to the MENA region and its diasporas. It aims not only to foster a community for academic and professional growth but also to provide a sustainable dialogue amongst graduate students and faculty in MENA Studies.
Open to all students in Northwestern's graduate and professional programs, MENA Graduate Student Community meets at least once a quarter. It hosts roundtable discussions, professional development opportunities, pedagogical workshops, film screenings, and other events in conjunction with the MENA Studies program.
Students interested in joining can email the MENA Grad listserv at MENA.NUgrads@gmail.com.
