Guest Researchers

We welcome a new round of advanced researchers (post-MA) to apply to the institute's guest researchers positions.

Phd Study Group

PhD researchers from Middle Eastern Studies, Anthropology, Social Studies, Humanities, Archeology, Egyptology, or Political Science come together twice every month to share and discuss their projects, to meet up for writing sessions, or to read and discuss texts or theoretical approaches. If you work on Egypt, and are in the latter stage of your Masters research or a PhD student, you are more than welcome to join our research circle. Please send a short email to stating your name, your institutional affiliation, and your research topic, and we will get back to you with more information
