The Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies (JMEWS) is the official publication of the Association for Middle East Women’s Studies, a multidisciplinary, international organization affiliated with the Middle East Studies Association. Its purpose is to advance the fields of Middle East women’s studies, gender studies, and Middle East studies through contributions across disciplines in the social sciences and humanities.

Located at the cutting edge of new scholarship in Middle East women’s studies, JMEWS encourages research using innovative, theoretical, epistemological, and methodological approaches. It reflects the explosion of knowledge production about Middle Eastern women and gender seen by the past quarter century and publishes research informed by transnational feminist studies, masculinity studies, cultural studies, 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.
