International Journal of Middle East Studies



Beth Baron and Sara Pursley

This issue starts with a section on modern Morocco, in anticipation of the upcoming IJMES special issue on Maghribi histories in the modern era. Our call for papers for the special issue was released in December 2010, just before the events of the “Arab Spring” accelerated what was likely the already growing importance of Maghrib scholarship within the broader field of Middle East studies.
