10 Postdoctoral Fellowships for the academic year 2013/2014
Forum Transregionale Studien, Berlin, Germany
Closing Date: 15 January 2013
The Berlin-based Forum Transregionale Studien invites scholars to apply for ten postdoctoral fellowships for the research program Europe in the Middle East—The Middle East in Europe (EUME).
EUME seeks to rethink key concepts and premises that link and divide Europe and the Middle East. The program draws on the international expertise of scholars in and outside of Germany and is embedded in university and extra-university research institutions in Berlin. It supports historical-critical philology, rigorous engagement with the literatures of the Middle East and their histories, the social history of cities and the study of Middle Eastern political and philosophical thought (Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and secular) as central fields of research not only for area or cultural studies, but also for European intellectual history and other academic disciplines. The program explores modernity as a historical space and conceptual frame.
