Arab Studies Quarterly (ASQ) was established in 1979 by the late Professors Edward Said and Ibrahim Abu-Lughod. They envisioned the journal to be a platform for academic research to counter anti-Arab propaganda veiled by academic jargon. Since its inception, ASQ has been a refereed academic journal that publishes articles on the Arabs, their history and social and political institutions. The journal continues in the tradition of its founders and is committed to promoting a humanism grounded in research as a counter to the dominant Orientalist discourses in the field of Arab (and Middle East) Studies.
