ANNOUNCEMENT: In light of current New York University precautions surrounding the COVID-19 virus and in the interest of keeping all our community members safe, the Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near East Studies at NYU has a number of important updates. At present we envision few issues being able to see our students enroll in required classes. Despite various Fall 2020 scenarios we will have our incoming 1st years + continuing 2nd years ontrack to complete their requirements and to graduate “on time.”
We will be holding the 2nd “Admitted Students” meeting the last week of July, followed by one-on-one meetings with continuing/incoming students with the Director of Graduate Studies the first two weeks of August. We will discuss options for Fall 2020 as they pertain to each individual graduate student.
Both of these courses are being reworked to account for the context of Fall 2020
MEIS-GA 1687 Prob & Meth in Mideast Studies - McCormick & Abourahme
Hybrid - Blended
NEST-GA 2005 Culture, Politics, and History in Middle East: Dispossession- Abourahme
Hybrid - Blended
Internship/ Independent Study/ Thesis Research for Fall 2020 have been listed as blended. Any students who may need to develop an independent study - and those who want to do an internship - must be in touch with Kevo’s DGS (Jared McCormick).
as of July 7, 2020
The Hagop Kevorkian Center building, including the Richard Ettinghausen Library, will be closed from March 16, 2020 until further notice. Our students will still have swipe access to the building and the computer lab, if needed. Our Spring 2020 public events have all been canceled and we hope to reschedule some of them for the upcoming year. Our staff will be working remote from Monday March 16, 2020 and are available via the same phone numbers and email to answer any questions about the program and the center as a whole. We prefer email as the main means of communication, so please email us at Kevorkian.Center@nyu.edu or a particular staff member, details can be found on our website here: http://bit.ly/3aNrgKW . We understand this news may come as a disappointment and we regret any inconvenience. We will keep you informed regarding any updates and we thank you for your understanding!
