Ph.D. Candidate Kiana Karimi will present her talk "Women’s daily practices of appropriating public space in Iran" as part of the Third Annual International Conference on Middle Eastern And North African Studies (MENA) at Ibn Tofail University in Kenitra, Morocco.
This conference aims to strengthen ties between academic disciplines, provide a platform for graduate students to present their research projects and exchange ideas, and create a network of emerging scholars spanning a variety of fields. This year’s conference is focused on the idea of mobility and concepts related to the Middle East from one field to the other, and boundaries being redefined on various levels. We encourage abstract submission not only from students within Middle Eastern and North African Studies programs, but also from Linguistics, Literature, Law and LGBT/Queer Studies, Journalism, Gender and Women Studies, Philosophy, Political Science, Public health, Religious Studies, Sociology, Translation, Anthropology, Economic, Education, Geography, History, Music, and other studies related to the Middle East and North Africa from approximately the 6th century to the present (and beyond).
