Critique: Critical Middle Eastern Studies - Call for Papers
Call for Papers
Critique invites submissions from all social science disciplines of articles presenting critical analyses of significant socio-economic, cultural, historical, and political developments in the Middle East.
Critique promotes an academic and critical examination of the history and contemporary political, social, economic, and cultural aspects of Middle Eastern countries. Critique actively engages theoretical and empirical studies and by so doing promotes a critical understanding of the complex nature of ideas, values, social configurations and material realities of Middle Eastern societies. Critique provides a forum for the inter-disciplinary examination of diverse issues based on solid research and critical readings of developments in the Middle East.
Forthcoming articles include:
Zühtü Arslan, Conflicting Paradigms: Politics of Turkey's Constitutional Court
Alaine Hutson, Manumission of Slaves in Saudi Arabia, 1926-38
