Lindenwood University will host the Midwest Association for Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies (MAMEIS) Annual Conference on Friday, April 9. The conference will be held in a virtual format and brings together talented scholars from the region.
Dr. Marcus Smith, assistant professor of history, has been essential in bringing the 2021 MAMEIS Annual Conference to Lindenwood. “I am the first scholar to join Lindenwood that specializes in the topic of Middle East and Islamic World, so the University hosting this conference is an opportunity to begin developing our institution’s presence in this field,” shared Smith. “Leading this partnership for Lindenwood will let other scholars of Middle East and Islamic Studies know that our university is advancing scholarship and teaching in this crucial area. In turn, this opens the door for future collaborations and recognizes Lindenwood’s commitment to academic diversity and excellence.”
MAMEIS is a non-profit organization that promotes and fosters community among the many scholars of Middle East and Islamic Studies based at institutions throughout the Midwest. MAMEIS is concerned with promoting the study of the Middle East and Islamic world and does not subscribe to any particular religious or political viewpoints or agenda
The conference is open to any graduate student or scholar with interest. For more information or registration, please contact Dr. Marcus Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org.
