Breaking and Creating Boundaries in the Middle East

Welcome to the University of Helsinki

The Nordic Society for Middle Eastern Studies (NSMES) is an independent and non-profit association for scholars in the Nordic countries – Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland – working on the Middle East. It covers all subjects in the humanities and social sciences, from antiquity to the present day. The associational conference of NSMES takes place every third year in one of the Nordic countries. In August 2019, the University of Helsinki and the Finnish Institute in the Middle East (FIME) will be hosting the conference in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. The conference is open for participants beyond the Nordic countries. #NSMES2019Helsinki
