48th Annual Meeting of the Middle East Studies Association
November 22-25, 2014
Washington, DC

All submissions must be made through myMESA, MESA's membership and electronic submissions system. The system opens on January 1, 2014, and closes at midnight (Mountain Standard Time) on February 15, 2014.

MESA's Purview

MESA is primarily concerned with the area encompassing Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan, Israel, Pakistan, and the countries of the Arab World from the seventh century to modern times. Other regions, including Spain, Southeastern Europe, China and the former Soviet Union, also are included for the periods in which their territories were parts of the Middle Eastern empires or were under the influence of Middle Eastern civilization. Comparative work is encouraged.

2. Update or complete your user profile. Click the "Profile" button. Click "Personal Info" below that. Check your data, update and enter information as necessary. Click the "category complete, next category" button at the bottom right of the page...this saves your data and moves you to the next section. Keep going through all sections of your profile until complete.

3. Pay 2014 membership dues. Under "membership status" do you see a green check or a red x next to "2014 Membership"? A green check means that your dues are current. A red x means that you need to pay dues. To pay dues, click the "Payments" button on the left and follow the instructions.

4. Familiarize yourself with submission categories and programmatic requirements. This information is key to a successful submission, because it tells you what the program committee will use as review criteria.
