The Knowledge Production Project (KPP) is a dynamic, open-access archive, search tool, and data visualization platform. This project, almost a decade in the making, endeavors to gather, organize, and make available for analysis all knowledge produced on the Middle East since 1979.
Our English-language archive, now composed of eight separate databases, systematically catalogues peer-reviewed journals, books, dissertations, translated books, book reviews, think tank papers, films and television programs, and websites.
Understanding that the production of and access to knowledge is never an impartial or equitable process, the Knowledge Production Project was founded to create new capacities for identifying and redressing these disparities. To that end, the platform encompasses five interactive search and data visualization tools that give users unprecedented access to sources of information about the Middle East, while simultaneously providing insight into the ways in which that knowledge is impacted by the conditions of its creation and transmission.
