The research network “Re-Configurations. History, Remembrance and Transformation Processes in the Middle East and North Africa” invites applications for visiting fellowships by scholars working on the MENA region or related fields that are of relevance for the network. During their stay in Marburg of between 3 and 6 months, visiting fellows will join the team of “Re-Configurations” and participate in the network’s activities, in addition to pursuing their own individual research projects.
“Re-Configurations” provides an institutional framework for an innovative interdisciplinary, comparative, empirically-founded and theory-led investigation of the transformation processes in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA region). The research program consolidates the regional competencies at Philipps-Universität Marburg, in order that interdisciplinary and cross-epochal research may be conducted to address the current developments and their historical context, in turn enabling new perspectives to be identified and evaluated. For this end stronger links are formed between the systematic disciplines represented in the research network (including religious studies, history, political science, sociology, media studies, literary studies, law, peace and conflict research) and those related to the MENA region, which are located in the Centre for Near and Middle East Studies (CNMS).
