The Southeast Regional Middle East and Islamic Studies Society (SERMEISS) Spring 2022 workshop is being held April 9-10, 2022 at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, AL. The workshop will focus on “Travel, Mobility, and Cultural Conflict in the Middle East and North Africa” and is being organized by a committee chaired by Dr. Waleed Hazbun (University of Alabama). Papers presented at the 2022 workshop will be considered for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Tourism History.


SERMEISS is an interdisciplinary organization interested in all areas of Middle East and Islamic Studies. For more information about SERMEISS, please see here.


We are planning an in-person workshop and will follow CDC safety guidance and the University of Alabama policy which requires masks inside all academic buildings. We recommend that all attendees be fully vaccinated and boosted.


Workshop presenters will have 20 minutes to present their papers and will be assigned a discussant. Presenters must submit a draft copy of their papers at least two weeks before the workshop (March 25, 2022), so that these can be circulated among confirmed workshop attendees. Paper presenters interested in submitting their manuscripts to the Journal of Tourism History will be expected to submit revised manuscripts to the workshop organizer by the middle of the summer 2022.


The workshop program can be found at the  Workshop website.
