McGill Journal of Middle East Studies

The McGill Journal of Middle East Studies is published by the (undergraduate) Middle East Studies Students' Association (MESSA) each year. It is intended to demonstrate the dynamic variety and depth of scholarship present within the McGill student community. Staff and contributors come from both graduate and undergraduate programmes in Middle East Studies, Islamic Studies, Political Science, Economics, Anthropology, History, Jewish Studies, and other disciplines. In each issue, we attempt to showcase multi- and interdisciplinary approaches to matters pertinent to the region.
