A message from the Director of DUMESC, miriam cooke.

“DUMESC offers its deepest condolences to the family and friends of the three young students, Deah Barakat, Yusor Abu-Salha and Razan Abu-Salha.” 


The Duke University Middle East Studies Center (DUMESC) is a hub for research, education, and outreach that serves as a forum at the local, national and international levels. We prepare tomorrow's leaders by equipping them with knowledge about Middle Eastern languages, cultures, and societies.
