Between 4 September and 16 October 2014, the third annual ACMES Autumn Lecture Series will be held. Everyone with an interest in the Middle East is warmly invited to attend these lectures.


Johan Weststeijn will open this year's series with his lecture on the Quranic conflict between the prophet and the tyrant. Other topics discussed in this series will include the situation in Iraq and democratic enclaves in Morocco, to name but a few. Please see the link below for the complete programme.

All lectures but the first one will be held in English, all meetings begin at 17.00 hours. Please note that the meeting with Marwan Kraidy and Judith Naeff atypically takes place on a Tuesday rather than on the customary Thursday.
