2015 Conference: The Middle East, North Africa and the World

February 27, 2015 - 4:30pm
Encina Central, CISAC Conference Room (616 Serra Street)

Open only to Stanford faculty, students and researchers.

Convened by  Professor Joel Beinin and Professor Robert Crews, this one-day conference will explore the global history of the Middle East and North Africa.The conference is chronologically delimited by two New York-centered financial panics that had substantial consequences for the Middle East and North Africa. While the region has long been engaged in global circuits of commerce, culture, and migration, this choice of chronological frame highlights the renewed salience of political economy in several academic disciplines.
