The Institute for Middle East Studies was founded in 2007 as part of a broad, University-wide initiative to support academic work on the Middle East. Institute for Middle East Studies faculty represent a breadth of disciplines from political science to media and public affairs to religion to international business. Our faculty are instrumental in coordinating major grant proposals, organizing research workshops and conferences for the Institute, and contributing original research to current academic and policy debates.
