IMES hosts frequent events providing insightful analysis and commentary across a wide range of views on the Middle East. Our Film and Lecture series features both rising and established scholars who present cutting-edge research on topics of broad interest to the Middle East studies community. Our Interdisciplinary Workshop Series provides an opportunity for faculty and students to engage critically with one another's research projects and build our intellectual community. IMES also hosts events for educators, equipping K-14 instructors with curricula, teaching strategies, and access to experts on the politics, societies, and culture of the Middle East.  IMES wraps up each academic year with its Annual Conference, which brings over a hundred attendees to a series of panels on groundbreaking research featuring experts from around the world.  The Institute is also home to the Project on Middle East Political Science and the Middle East Policy Forum, each of which have their own event series.
