Tunisia Winter Study Excursion

The Harvard Center for Middle Eastern Studies offers a winter study excursion to Tunisia. This three-week itinerary, based in the city of Tunis, focuses on the history and culture of Tunisia and how they intersect with landscape and urbanism. The field-based program is intended for students whose primary focus is on North African and Middle Eastern studies. The program is open to graduate students across Harvard’s Schools.

The January 2024 program will be led by Gareth Doherty, Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, with Sihem Lamine, Associate Director of the CMES Tunisia Office. The excursion is scheduled from January 3 to January 19. A pre-departure meeting will be held during reading week.

Applications are due Friday, November 17.
