“The Adverse Effects of the Pandemic on MENA Research" with Marwa Shalaby
Professor Shalaby will present the most recent findings of an online survey of international and regional faculty working in the social sciences and humanities. The talk will highlight the adverse effects of the pandemic on scholars’ productivity and ability to conduct fieldwork. Shalaby argues that while the pandemic has interrupted most scholars’ research plans, researchers who study the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region are more likely to encounter higher barriers. Given the authoritarian nature of politics in most parts of the region, MENA researchers face security and ethical challenges associated with conducting fieldwork remotely, especially with vulnerable and displaced populations. These effects will have a long-lasting impact on MENA research and scholars.
