Let’s not deny it, we’ve all Googled ourselves before. When we search for “Middle East London” the first thing that comes up is the London Middle East Institute. So I went to find out what this search engine monopoliser was all about. I spoke to Dr Sarah Stewart, deputy director of the Institute. She told me all about it, including their bi-monthly magazine The Middle East in London, which you can subscribe to here.
The LMEI is housed in SOAS University and affiliated with the Brunei Gallery, which regularly hold concerts and exhibitions by artists hailing from the Middle East. Perhaps they deserve that top spot after all. Find out more here and watch our video below.
