Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies

The Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies (JMEWS) is the official publication of the Association for Middle East Women’s Studies (AMEWS). Its purpose is to advance the fields of Middle East women’s and gender studies through contributions from multiple disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. Located at the cutting edge of the new scholarship in Middle East women’s studies, JMEWS reflects the explosion of knowledge production about Middle Eastern women and gender over the past several decades and publishes research informed by transnational feminist, masculinity, and modern historical studies, new forms of ethnography, and the emergent intersections of science, technology, and philosophy. JMEWS provides a forum in which area-specific questions can be discussed and debated among authors from around the globe, through scholarly articles, book and film reviews, and other forms of communication.
