Call for Nominations for the 2017 MES Book Award

The Middle East Section is now accepting nominations for its biennial book award.

Criteria may include: innovative approaches, theoretical sophistication, and topical originality.

Books submitted for the 2017 MES book award must have a publication date of 2015 or 2016.

To nominate a work, please send one copy of the book to each of the three committee members listed below.

All submissions must be received by March 15, 2017.
