Welcome to the Center for Middle East Studies (CMES) at the University of Denver's Josef Korbel School of International Studies. 

We seek to engage the University of Denver community and the broader Denver community in informed discussion on topics of regional importance in an effort to deepen understanding of this critical region of the world. We host numerous events, films, and panel discussions throughout the year; almost all are completely free and open to the public. 

We also hope to add to discussions by staying engaged with current events through our timely news & journal publications, as well as our frequent appearances on local and national news networks.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with University of Denver policies, the Center for Middle East Studies has canceled all in-person events for the foreseeable future. We are currently offering virtual opportunities to connect with our faculty and guest speakers.
