Next 5 October 2020 will take place the online discussion of Research In Pandemic Times to learn about the results of a survey on the effects of the pandemic on social sciences and humanities researchers studying the MENA region and to discuss ways to overcome the challenges the pandemic presents. The discussion is organized by the Arab Political Science Network and Al-Fanar Media.
Two authors of the survey, Marwa Shalaby and Gail Buttorff, will discuss what they learned from more than 200 faculty members in 32 countries. The survey found that researchers who study the Middle East and North Africa region have faced increased difficulties compared to researchers focusing on other parts of the world.
This event will take place on October 5, 2020 at 9 am EST - 4 pm Beirut. The discussion will be in English with simultaneous Arabic translation, and livestreamed on Facebook.
