The Center for Middle Eastern Studies is offering a winter term study excursion to Tunisia, January 2020; details are still being determined. The three-week itinerary focuses on the history, literature, culture of Tunisia and is ideal for students primarily focusing on North African and Middle Eastern Studies. This program is open to all graduate students across the Harvard Campus, and upperclassmen (juniors and seniors) concentrating in MENA studies are welcome to apply.

Planned dates are January 3 to 23, traveling as a group from Boston.
