The primary mission of the Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies (CMENAS) at Queens College is to increase consciousness among the students and faculty of Queens College and the surrounding community, of the Middle East and North Africa and their countries’ diverse societies, histories, cultures and politics. The center will advance open discussion on the Middle East and North Africa as regions in relation to the west and the US, and their individual countries – the Arab states, Turkey, Iran, Israel and Palestine — with their unique characterizing societies, religions, cultures and problems. We wish to promote among students, faculty and community members, understanding of the knowledge that “make news” of the Middle East and North Africa and encourage their involvement in inter-cultural and inter-faith dialogue on campus and in public life.
