What is Riḥla? Riḥla, the Arabic word for “journey,” is the academic journal published yearly by the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies and the MA in Middle East Studies (MAMES) program at Tel Aviv University.
Riḥla publishes articles about the recent history and politics of the Middle East and North Africa and seeks to promote and disseminate the work of young scholars and graduate students with firsthand knowledge of the region's cultures and languages.
Each issue will include academic articles, personal travel essays, and photographs inspired by contemporary events in the Middle East and North Africa. It will also feature the two essays selected as the winner and runner-up of the MAMES Workshop Essay Contest.
The editors of Riḥla now welcome submissions of scholarly articles, travel essays, and photographs from young academics and graduate students from any and all countries.
