The Institute for Middle East Studies at The George Washington University offers educational and outreach programming for a variety of public audiences. We share scholarly research and perspectives that enrich understanding of the Middle East through expert lectures, films, book talks, arts & culture programming, support for K-14 curriculum development, and translating academic research into public scholarship, including content designed for a broad audience.
IMES hosts scholarly lectures, expert panels, conferences, and other events designed for faculty, students, and others wanting an in-depth look at regional politics, economics, and culture. Recordings of past events are available on the IMES YouTube page. For a list of past events (without recordings) visit our event archive.
