Undergraduate Student Conference on the Middle East

The Portland State University Middle East Studies Center is holding its third annual conference on the Middle East for undergraduate students. The conference offers a unique opportunity for students with an interest in the Middle East to meet and learn more about the region from their peers. Much of the program is devoted to student presentations. Attendees are invited to lead a session or to listen and participate in discussion. This year's conference will conclude with a Keynote Address by a prominent scholar on the Middle East (speaker TBD).

If you would like to submit a proposal to present at the conference, visit their website here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dDFKeWh3ZFlmdDlzUGhWYm5Yd1ZSYWc6MQ#gid=0
