Mashriq and Mahjar: Journal of Middle East Migration Studies

Mashriq & Mahjar: Journal of Middle East & North African Migration Studies is a bi-annual electronic publication devoted to disseminating original research on migration from, to, and within the region now commonly known as the 'Middle East.' Its primary focus is on the Eastern Mediterranean. However, its scope also extends to Iran, Turkey, Greece and the Balkans, Egypt, and the Arabian Peninsula, and to all parts of the world affected by Middle Eastern migration, from the Americas and Africa to Australia and South-East Asia. The journal welcomes submissions on all aspects of human movement and the circulation of ideas, cultural artifacts, and commodities, from the disciplinary perspectives of history, anthropology, economics, political science, sociology, art history, literary studies, and comparative religion. Each issue contains double-blind peer-reviewed articles and detailed reviews of relevant publications.
