This series investigates the “worlding” of the Middle East, and the ever-changing, ever-becoming dynamism of the region. It seeks to capture the ways in which the region is being reimagined and unmade through flows of world capital, power, ideas, and culture.
We encourage studies that challenge the boundaries of disciplinary approaches. We have particular interest in works that embrace world places, networks, and communities that are inextricably linked to the geographical region and its peoples, as well as studies that consider ethnic and religious minorities. Spanning the modern period to the present, Worlding the Middle East showcases critical and innovative books that develop new ways of thinking about the Middle East and the wider world.
