The Middle East Studies Association (MESA) represents the largest network of Middle Eastern, European, and North American scholars – across disciplines in the humanities and social sciences – specialized in the study of this region. MESA promotes high standards of scholarship and teaching and encourages public understanding of the region and its peoples through programs, publications, and services that enhance education, further intellectual exchange, recognize professional distinction, and defend academic freedom. MESA has launched the MESA Global Academy, in conjunction with the SUNY Graduate Center in New York to harness the strengths of its network of institutional and individual members to sustain research collaborations and knowledge production between scholars from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and their counterparts outside the region.
