News and Updates from FPA

APSA is currently accepting proposals from political scientists interested in serving as co-leaders for the 2015 MENA Workshops program. Submissions must come from a team of two scholars based at universities in the MENA region and two in the US or Europe. Those applying to be co-leaders should propose the workshop theme, locations, and regional host partners. The application deadline is December 14, 2014.

Funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, APSA's MENA Workshops program is a multi-year effort to enhance scholarly capacity and regional networking among early-career scholars in the Arab Middle East and North Africa. Each program consists of two separate one-week workshops attended by approximately twenty competitively-selected PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers from across the MENA region, plus several others from the United States and Europe. Previous workshops have been held at the American University in Cairo (AUC), the American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR) in Amman, the Center for Maghreb Studies in Tunis (CEMAT), and Lebanese American University (LAU) in Beirut. 

The MENA Workshops are great way to network with young faculty and generate research on a specific theme of interest. Workshop leaders serve as academic directors of the project and are responsible for all substantive content. A modest honorarium will be provided and related expenses (meals, transportation, lodging, incidentals) will be covered. Workshop administration and logistics will be led by APSA staff in conjunction with local partners. 

 For application instructions and additional information check out the project website (www.apsanet.org/menaworkshops) or contact menaworkshops@apsanet.org.
