The Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies Monthly Meetings: Music and Conflict

I am pleased to share news about #The_Middle_Eastern_and_Islamic_Studies_Monthly_Meetings, a recurring gathering aimed at bringing together scholars and students in the field of Islamic/Muslim/Middle Eastern studies at the #University_of_Alberta. The meeting themes will be selected by presenters — professors and their graduate students.

I as the organizer of these monthly meetings hope that your active participation and support will not only bring our academic community together but also provide a valuable space for the consolidation of the #MEIS epistemic community and meaningful critical dialogue.

Our inaugural meeting will feature a panel discussion titled “#Music_and_Conflict“, with Professor #Michael_Frishkopf and Dr. #Gabriel_Ojakovo, chaired by Dr. #Joseph_Hill. The program will also include a live music performance by #Kian_Morad, followed by refreshments, a meet & greet, and informal networking.

We invite you to join us on Tuesday, November 28, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM, at Tory Building 12-15.
