Public Humanities Outreach Initiative at the Institute for Middle East Studies

The Public Humanities Outreach Initiative at IMES supports programming that provides immersive experiences to a variety of public audiences throughout the DC metro area on topics in Middle East studies. By sharing the scholarly resources of the Institute for Middle East Studies at the George Washington University, we create opportunities for deeper learning and share diverse perspectives on current events in the Middle East through offering expert lectures, film series, author talks, arts and culture programming, and K-12 curriculum development on topics in Middle East studies.

In addition to in-person events tailored to multiple university constituents and public audiences, this initiative includes a robust digital platform to archive and share events and resources to enable the initiative’s sustainability and incorporate future collaborations.
