R. Stephen Humphreys Distinguished Visiting Scholar
_________________________________________________________

For a number of years the Center for Middle East Studies at UCSB has hosted a distinguished senior scholar each year for a short ‘residency’ during which that scholar has not only delivered a public lecture, but also led a graduate text seminar, and, in addition, has held meetings with graduate students and faculty members.  In recent years these distinguished visitors have included Gregor Schoeler (2010), Patricia Crone (2011), Wadad Kadi (2012), Angelika Neuwirth (2013), Maribel Fierro (2014), Richard Bulliet (2015), and Michael Cook (2016).

In 2012, the Middle East Studies Faculty voted to honor Professor R. Stephen Humphreys (History, UCSB) on the occasion of his retirement by officially naming this annual residency the “R. Stephen Humphreys Distinguished Visiting Scholar.”  It is therefore with great pleasure that this year we welcome Everett K. Rowson (New York University) as the 2017 R. Stephen Humphreys Distinguished Visiting Scholar.
