The Association for Middle East Women’s Studies is a private, non-profit, non-political, international organization of scholars and other persons interested in the study of women in the Middle East. The objectives of the Association are to advance the study of women in the Middle East. AMEWS is an affiliated organization of the Middle East Studies Association of North America, Inc. AMEWS was founded over sixteen years ago by scholars interested in promoting quality research in the field of Middle East women’s studies.
AMEWS meets annually in conjunction with the Middle East Studies Association annual conference. AMEWS organizes conference panels and symposia for the presentation of original scholarship, and through its quarterly publication, MIDDLE EAST WOMEN’S STUDIES REVIEW which critiques the literature in the field, reviews films, provides a forum for the discussion of current issues, communicates events, jobs, and fellowship opportunities, provides links for scholars and recognizes the accomplishments of its members. Membership in AMEWS is open to anyone with an interest in Middle East women’s studies.
We are governed by a Board of Directors, and act through Committees for activities of the Association. The Review is directed by the Editor in consultation with an Editorial Board.
