CAMPUS SPECIFIC INFORMATION
The Graduate Center, CUNY is the focal point for advanced teaching and research at The City University of New York (CUNY), the nation's largest urban public university. With over 35 doctoral and master's programs of the highest caliber, the Graduate Center fosters pioneering research and scholarship in the arts and sciences and prepares students for careers in universities and the private, nonprofit, and government sectors. The Graduate Center's commitment to research and scholarship for the public good is exemplified by its more than 30 centers, institutes, and initiatives, including its Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC), a 200,000 square-foot facility in upper Manhattan, designed to promote collaboration among scientists in five areas of global research and innovation: nanoscience, photonics, structural biology, neuroscience, and environmental sciences.
The Graduate Center (GC) benefits from highly ambitious and diverse students and alumni—who in turn teach hundreds of thousands of undergraduates every year. Through its public programs, the Graduate Center enhances New York City's intellectual and cultural life.
The Middle East and Middle Eastern American Center (MEMEAC) at the Graduate Center announces a post-doctoral fellowship for a scholar pursuing research on notions and practices of race and racialization in the Middle East/North Africa and among Middle Easterners/North Africans in the United States.
Since 2001, the Middle East and Middle Eastern American Center (MEMEAC) at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, has been promoting the study of the Middle East and migrants from the region. Bringing together a critical mass of more than eighty affiliated faculty members from throughout the CUNY system, MEMEAC serves as a magnet for doctoral students at the GC who focus on the Middle East and North Africa from different disciplinary perspectives and a hub for our own Master's students.

MEMEAC regularly sponsors book conversations, films, lectures, works-in-progress and dissertation writing seminars, and workshops; the Center functions as a resource for both the CUNY community and the public at large.
