Relocated MESA Sessions

Waleed Hazbun, Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Johns Hopkins has requested that we post the following rescheduled Middle East Studies Association (MESA) panels on the blog. As many of you know, MESA also planned its annual meeting in SF at about the same time as the AAA. The MESA board decided that they could not get put of their contract with Hyatt which has also locked out its workers.
