The Middle East and Islamic Consortium of British Columbia (MEICON-BC)


The Middle East and Islamic Consortium of British Columbia (MEICON-BC) was founded in 2008 as a collaborative project of Simon Fraser University, the University of Victoria, and the University of British Columbia with the participation of other British Columbian universities and colleges. It is hosted by the Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies at Simon Fraser University.


The purpose of MEICON-BC is to provide an organizational basis for communication and cooperation among all British Columbian academics interested in the study of the Middle East and Muslim societies and cultures.


MEICON has no dues or officers, and is open to all British Columbian academics.


MEICON-BC provides an email list to post information on events of interest to its members and organizes an annual student conference.


Please email if you wish to be added to our mailing list in order to receive our regular e-digest highlighting upcoming academic events related to Middle East and Islamic studies.
