These are the scholars who have been in the field, studied the people, know the ins and outs and all the complexities. They are assembling to share their research and plan future collaborations, and you could have their undivided attention.
If your target audience is Middle East studies scholars — the shining stars and the up-and-comers — you do not want to miss the opportunity to participate in the annual meeting of the Middle East Studies Association of North America, Inc. (MESA).
