The British Society for Middle Eastern Studies (BRISMES) together with the Council for British Research in the Levant (CBRL) are pleased to announce their third joint mentoring webinar for members.
Targeting postgraduate students and early career researchers, these on-line events offer practical advice and support from specialists, equipping the next generation of Middle East scholars with the insights needed to get ahead in their research and careers. This event will focus on the subject of “Conducting Field Research in the Middle East” and will feature a diverse line-up of academics from different disciplinary backgrounds who also utilize different methodological research techniques in their work.
Field research in the Middle East has become increasingly complicated and restrictive, while the praxes of previous generations of scholars have also created problematic legacies and expectations. This webinar seeks to dive into all aspects of field research in the Middle East so that you can get the most out of your time in the field, while doing so in an ethical and safe manner.
