Call for Submissions: Pedagogy Files in Al-ʿUṣūr al-Wusā

Is there a primary source from the medieval Middle East that you particularly enjoy teaching? If so, we encourage you to submit a “pedagogy file” to Al-ʿUṣūr al-Wusā. Our new pedagogy section, launched in 2023 with a file entitled “Textiles across Medieval Eurasia,” is focused on primary sources—images, objects, buildings, poems, inscriptions, or prose passages—contextualized for the undergraduate classroom. Submissions should briefly introduce the primary source, provide basic background and explanatory notes in the form of bullet points, and suggest discussion questions or overall takeaways. Images and short bibliographies are encouraged. Submissions should be between 1000 and 4000 words and will be subject to editorial, but not peer, review. For the 2024 issue, pedagogy files should be received by September 1.

 Al-ʿUṣūr al-Wusā: The Journal of Middle East Medievalists is the only open-access, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the medieval Middle East, expansively defined to include all geographies with prominent Muslim political, religious, or social presences between the rough parameters of 500-1500 CE. The open-access publication of al-ʿUṣūr al-Wusā is made possible by Middle East Medievalists (MEM), an international, non-profit association of scholars.
