SJD Candidate Mohamed Abdelaal Takes Part in Conference at Columbia University
Mohamed Abdelaal, an SJD candidate at IU McKinney, took part in “Paradigmatic Conflict and Crisis” a conference sponsored by the Columbia University Department of Middle East, South Asian, and African Studies (MESAAS).
The conference was held February 28 through March 1, 2013, in New York City. The MESAAS conference brought together graduate students working on the social and intellectual traditions of those three regions for constructive exchanges in a welcoming and stimulating environment. Through those exchanges, students are offered the opportunity to capitalize on the participants’ very diverse range of backgrounds by exploring common theoretical and methodological challenges and concerns, and by being exposed to new insights that could be of value to their graduate-level work and future academic careers.
