This site contains information on events, fellowships, conferences, and job-postings related to the Middle East and North African Studies.

The University of Michigan Center for Middle Eastern & North African Studies (CMENAS) is dedicated to promoting a broader and deeper understanding of the region – its histories, cultures, languages, and peoples – through research, education, and outreach programs.

The center provides a venue for faculty, students, and the community to learn and share knowledge through an active lecture series and various educational and research programs, and by partnering with a host of units across campus on projects of mutual interest.

CMENAS works to:

  • Support dialogue between U-M faculty, students, and the broader community by organizing and supporting conferences, lectures, and performances
  • Produce outstanding scholars in a supportive environment where students have the opportunity to study current and historical events  related to the Middle East
  • Invite scholars from the region and elsewhere in the world to U-M to teach, collaborate, and take advantage of our outstanding libraries and research facilities
