The MESAAS Graduate Student Conference is an annual event organized by the graduate students of Columbia University’s Department of Middle Eastern, South Asian and African Studies. The conference brings together graduate students working on the social and intellectual traditions of those three regions for constructive exchanges in a welcoming and stimulating environment. Through these exchanges, participants have the opportunity to capitalize on each others’ diverse range of backgrounds by exploring common theoretical and methodological challenges and concerns, and by being exposed to new insights of value to their graduate-level work and future academic careers.
