Deadline for proposals: Sunday, February 21, 2021
The American Political Science Association (APSA) is pleased to announce a call for proposals from political scientists interested in serving as co-leaders for the 2021 APSA MENA Workshop. Due to ongoing uncertainty regarding coronavirus and travel restrictions, the 2021 program will be held virtually during spring/summer 2021. For more information and a full description of the program see https://web.apsanet.org/mena/
Funded by Carnegie Corporation of New York (CCNY), the MENA Workshops are a multi-year effort to support political science research and networking among early-career scholars across the region. The 2021 Workshop will be led by a team of two scholars based at universities in the Arab world and two scholars based in the U.S. Approximately 12-16 competitively selected PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers from across the Arab world will be selected to participate as fellows. Workshop co-leaders serve as academic directors of the program and are responsible for assembling a unique set of resources (readings and/or short video lectures) to guide discussion of the workshop themes, moderating weekly zoom discussion groups, and providing detailed feedback on participants’ research. Co-leaders will receive a $2,500 honorarium and join a growing community of scholars who have led APSA’s MENA Workshops program.
Workshop proposals should be submitted jointly by the four co-leaders and should include both a workshop theme statement and a description of expertise among the workshop co-leaders as it relates to the workshop theme. For more details about the workshop proposal structure, please see the Call for Application here.
All proposals should be submitted via this online form no later than Sunday, February 21, 2021. Team selection will be announced in early March. Prospective leaders interested in discussing their proposal ideas and/or receiving feedback on a draft proposal are encouraged to contact us at email@example.com well before the deadline.
