Middle East Studies Association 2023

November 2–5, 2023 | Montréal, Québec

Welcome to our conference hub for the 2023 Middle East Studies Association conference! We are excited to be celebrating with you all virtually this year.

Got an interdisciplinary book you want some editing or indexing help with? You can schedule a free Zoom consultation with IoF founder Cathy Hannabach to learn how our team of editors, indexers, researchers, and publishing consultants can help get your book out into the world.

Below, you can check out the latest Middle East studies books we have edited and/or indexed.

Even if you can’t attend in person, you can follow along with the conversations at the conference hashtag #MESA2023.

Finally, we’d love to hear from you on the socials! You can catch us here:
