The workshop provides the opportunity for current doctoral or master candidates to present, discuss, and receive valuable feedback on work related to North Africa. Accepted applicants will submit a piece of writing from their dissertations or theses at any stage (prospectus, dissertation chapter, or article draft). Participants will read and prepare discussion of one or more other submissions in addition to presenting their own. Scholars who have worked on North Africa in a variety of disciplines will offer feedback, as well as perspectives on publishing, job market conditions, and other topics germane to professional academic development. The workshop further affords the opportunity to meet and develop relationships with colleagues in the field.

All disciplines are welcome. In the past they have included: history, political science, anthropology, sociology, archaeology, comparative literature, psychology, and public health. Space and funding are limited. There will be some money for travel expenses and per diem allowances.
