Beschreibung

The Center for Middle Eastern Studies (CMES) was founded in 1954 to promote the interdisciplinary study of the Middle East at Harvard University. The Center's mandate has involved it in teaching as well as research on both the classical and contemporary aspects of the Middle East. Its scholarly interests also include Islamic societies and cultures worldwide. CMES functions as the coordinating body and a primary source of intellectual and material support within the Harvard Community for academic programs covering the vast area between Morocco and Iran, and beyond.

It also looks at the Center's activities in disseminati
