Scholar Profiles

MESA Global Academy Scholars

The MESA Global Academy – an initiative of the Middle East Studies Association of North America and the Graduate Center, City University of New York – awards competitive scholarships to social science and humanities scholars from MENA to join interdisciplinary research collaborations at North American universities. These collaborations take many forms, including convening research workshops, undertaking professional development activities, and enabling publications of a variety of formats ranging from scholarly articles in peer-reviewed journals to policy briefs, blog posts, and podcasts.

The project also promotes reconfiguring the careers of individual researchers whose academic trajectory has been adversely impacted by developments in their home contexts. Below please find profiles of a number of current and alumni Global Academy Scholars.
