Since 2001, the Middle East and Middle Eastern American Center (MEMEAC) at The Graduate Center, City University of New York, has been promoting the study of the Middle East and migrants from the region. Bringing together a critical mass of more than eighty affiliated faculty members from throughout the CUNY system, MEMEAC serves as a magnet for doctoral students at the GC who focus on the Middle East and North Africa from different disciplinary perspectives and a hub for our own Master’s students. With growing interest in the Middle East, the Center launched a Master’s Program in Middle Eastern Studies in 2008 that draws students from across the country and around the world. MEMEAC regularly sponsors book conversations, films, lectures, works-in-progress and dissertation writing seminars, and workshops; the Center functions as a resource for both the CUNY community and the public at large.
