5 POSTDOC FELLOWSHIPS FOR THE ACADEMIC YEAR 2018/19

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
5 POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS FOR THE ACADEMIC YEAR 2018/19
(Location: Berlin / Closing Date: May 15, 2018)

The Berlin-based Forum Transregionale Studien invites scholars to apply for five postdoctoral fellowships for the academic year 2018/19 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 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.

The program puts forward three programmatic ideas:
1) supporting research that demonstrates the rich and complex historical legacies and entanglements between Europe and the Middle East; 2) re-examining genealogical notions of mythical ‘beginnings’, ‘origins’, and ‘purity’ in relation to culture and society; and 3) rethinking key concepts of a shared modernity in light of contemporary cultural, social, and political entanglements that supersede identity discourses as well as national, cultural or regional canons and epistemologies that were established in the nineteenth century.

EUME supports and builds upon the following interconnected research fields:

CITIES COMPARED: URBAN CHANGE IN THE MEDITERRANEAN AND ADJACENT REGIONS
is directed by Ulrike Freitag and Nora Lafi, both of the Zentrum Moderner Orient, Berlin. It contributes to the debate on plurality, citizenship and civil society from the historical experience of conviviality and social, cultural, ethnic, and religious differences and conflict in the cities around the Mediterranean;

ISLAMIC DISCOURSE CONTESTED: MIDDLE EASTERN AND EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVES
is directed by Gudrun Krämer, Institute of Islamic Studies, Freie Universität Berlin. It analyzes modern Middle Eastern thought in the framework of discourses on authenticity, modernity, secularity, and justice;

PERSPECTIVES ON THE QUR’AN: NEGOTIATING DIFFERENT VIEWS OF A SHARED HISTORY
is directed by Angelika Neuwirth, Freie Universität Berlin. This research group situates the foundational text of Islam within the religious and literary landscape of late antiquity, early Islamic History and Arabic philology, and combines a historicization of its genesis with an analysis of its hermeneutics, its reception and perception in Europe and the Middle East;

TRAVELLING TRADITIONS: COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVES ON NEAR EASTERN LITERATURES
is directed by Friederike Pannewick, Center for Near and Middle Eastern Studies, Philipps-Universität Marburg, and Samah Selim, Rutgers University. This research group reassesses literary entanglements, translations, and processes of canonization between the Middle East and other regions.

TRADITION AND THE CRITIQUE OF MODERNITY: SECULARISM, FUNDAMENTALISM AND RELIGION FROM MIDDLE EASTERN PERSPECTIVES
is a special forum, directed by Amnon Raz-Krakotzkin, Ben-Gurion University, that attempts to rethink key concepts of modernity like secularity, tradition, or religion in the context of experiences, interpretations, and critiques from the Middle East.

EUME is interested in developing new fields of research that bridge the gap between social science approaches and cultural studies in questions relating to ongoing transformation processes in Europe and the Middlea East (in cooperation with Cilja Harders, Otto Suhr Institute of Political Science, Freie Universität Berlin, Rachid Ouaissa, Political Science Department, Center for Near and Middle Eastern Studies, Philipps-Universität Marburg and Kader Konuk, Universität Duisburg-Essen).

FELLOWSHIPS

The fellowships are intended primarily for scholars of art history, history, literature, philology, political philosophy, political science, religion and sociology who want to carry out their research projects in connection with the Berlin program. Applicants should be at the postdoctoral level and should have obtained their doctorate within the last seven years.

Fellows gain the opportunity to pursue research projects of their own choice within the overall framework of Europe in the Middle East – the Middle East in Europe. Successful applicants will be fellows of EUME at the Forum Transregionale Studien, and associate members of one of the university or non-university research institutes listed below.

As a rule, the fellowships start on 1 October 2018 and will end on 31 July 2019. Postdoctoral fellows will receive a monthly stipend of 2.500 € plus supplement depending on their personal situation. Organisational support regarding visa, insurances, housing, etc. will be provided. Fellows are obliged to work in Berlin and to help shape the seminars and working discussions related to their research field. Scholars are also invited to apply with their own funding. The working language of EUME is English.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE

An application should be made in explicit relation to one of the research fields and consist of
–  the attached application cover sheet
–  a curriculum vitae,
–  a project description (no longer than 5 pages), stating what the scholar will work on in Berlin if granted a fellowship

INSTITUTIONAL FRAMEWORK

EUROPE IN THE MIDDLE EAST—THE MIDDLE EAST IN EUROPE (EUME) has been initiated in 2006 as a joint research program of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, the Fritz Thyssen Foundation and the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin. It builds upon the previous work of the Working Group Modernity and Islam (1996-2006). Since 2011, EUME is continued at the Forum Transregionale Studien.

In scholarly terms, EUME is directed by a Collegium that currently consists of the following persons: Ulrike Freitag (Zentrum Moderner Orient, Berlin), Cilja Harders (Otto Suhr Institute of Political Science, Freie Universität Berlin), Kader Konuk (Institut für Turkistik, Universität Duisburg-Essen), Gudrun Krämer (Institute of Islamic Studies, Freie Universität Berlin), Nora Lafi (Zentrum Moderner Orient, Berlin), Angelika Neuwirth (Freie Universität Berlin), Rachid Ouaissa (Center for Near and Middle Eastern Studies, Philipps-Universität Marburg), Friederike Pannewick (Center for Near and Middle Eastern Studies, Philipps-Universität Marburg), Amnon Raz-Krakotzkin, (Ben-Gurion University, Beer Sheva), Samah Selim (Rutgers University), and Stefan Weber (Museum for Islamic Art, Berlin).

The Berlin-based Forum Transregionale Studien is a research organization that promotes the internationalization of research in the humanities and social sciences. The Forum provides scope for collaboration among researchers with different regional and disciplinary perspectives and appoints researchers from all over the world as Fellows. In cooperation with universities and research institutions in Berlin and outside, it carries out research projects that examine other regions of the world and their relationship to Germany and Europe systematically and with new questions. It currently supports four research programs and initiatives: ART HISTORIES AND AESTHETIC PRACTICES, Prisma Ukraïna: Research Network Eastern Europe, ZUKUNFTSPHILOLOGIE: Revisiting the Canons of Textual Scholarship, the Academy in Exile, and EUROPE IN THE MIDDLE EAST—THE MIDDLE EAST IN EUROPE (EUME).

We are delighted to announce the Call for Papers for our workshop ‘Preliminary Considerations on the Corpus Coranicum Christianum. The Quran in Translation – A Survey of the State-of-the-Art’ at the Freie Universität Berlin (Germany), December 5th – 7th, 2018
. In this workshop, we aim to lay the groundwork for an interdisciplinary research project, which will focus on comparing the different translations of the Quran made within Christian cultural backgrounds. The project will study the Quran and its reception from the Christian perspective by analyzing all Greek, Syriac, and Latin translations of the Quran from the 7th century CE until the Early Modern period.The keynote speech will be delivered by Professor Angelika Neuwirth, head of the project Corpus Coranicum (CC) at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. The workshop aims to map out the different scholars and research traditions dealing with varied translations of the Quran. In addition, it seeks to connect these experts and to facilitate the scientific exchange between the multitude of studies previously conducted in this field. Finally, the workshop will examine the possibilities of using methods in the Digital Humanities for building an open-access database for systematically collecting and presenting the material for further research.The structure of the planned project will correspond with the languages that will be analyzed. The Corpus Coranicum Christianum (CCC) shall, in a first step, consist of the three subprojects: Corpus Coranicum Byzantinum (CCB), Corpus Coranicum Syriacum (CCS), and Corpus Coranicum Latinum (CCL). Papers for the workshop are welcome in one or more of the following four sections:

• Greek translations of the Quran (CCB)
• Syriac translations of the Quran (CCS)
• Latin translations of the Quran (CCL)
• Digital Humanities (DH)

The workshop is focused on interdisciplinary research, which will, the organizers hope, encourage fruitful discussions about the state-of-the-art of the field and highlight potential areas for future research cooperation. For this purpose, we welcome abstracts of up to 300 words, to be submitted in English by May 31st, 2018 to: corpus.coranicum.christianum@klassphil.fu-berlin.de. Abstracts should include your name, affiliation, position, the title of the proposed paper, your specific source(s) you want to work on, and a brief curriculum vitae. Please also indicate the preferred section (see above: CCB, CCS, CCL, DH). Notifications will be sent out in June 2018. Full papers should be submitted by 15th November, 2018.

The Berlin-based Forum Transregionale Studien and the Irmgard Coninx Foundation invite postdoctoral researchers in the humanities and social sciences to apply for the Irmgard Coninx Prize Fellowship for Transregional Studies in the framework of its research programs

Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices
Europe in the Middle East— The Middle East in Europe (EUME) and
Prisma Ukraїna – Research Network Eastern Europe.

Processes of globalization and fragmentation, increased mobility of things, persons, and ideas as well as new forms of immobility and shrinking public spaces transform individual life worlds, politics and whole societies. Exchange and interaction, entanglement and networks characterize our world as much as their opposites. This requires closer collaboration between scholars from different regional backgrounds and a fundamental thematic and conceptual reconfiguration of the academic disciplines, which largely continue to analyze the world within the framework of nation-states or geographic/cultural areas.

The Forum Transregionale Studien aims to contribute to such a revision that includes curriculum reform, terminological innovation, and a rethinking of the prevailing narratives of social change. By bringing scholars from a variety of disciplines and from different locations to Berlin, the Forum promotes intellectual dialogue across fields of specialization and between area studies and the systematic disciplines. The aim is to arrive at a novel understanding of the interrelated processes that have shaped social dynamics locally and globally.

The Prize
The Irmgard Coninx Prize Fellowship for Transregional Studies consists of one research fellowship of up to 10 months and is awarded to a project dealing with a particular research question that relates disciplinary and area-based knowledge in mutually beneficial ways.

The winner of the award will be able to carry out a research project…… ادامه مطلب

فراخوان مقاله: تصویری از مکتب صوفیه

تاریخ انتشار: ۱۳۹۶/۰۷/۲۵
تاریخ اعتبار: ۱۳۹۶/۰۸/۰۹

کنفرانس و کارگاه در دانشگاه بن آلمان

هزینه سفر مولفان مقالات پذیرفته شده پرداخت میشود

Topic and Aim

From the Late Medieval Period onward many Sufi treatises began to display an increasing amount of visual elements, mainly in the form of diagrams, which can either have an auxiliary function, i.e. to help explain the contents of specific written passages, or be themselves at the very core of the text.

A comprehensive study aiming to understand the significance and diffusion of such visual devices in Sufi literature—involving such disparate disciplines as Philology, History of the Book and Codicology on the one hand, and Intellectual History and the History of Ideas on the other—has never been systematically undertaken. With special regard to the development of Islamicate Intellectual History, it would seem that the qualitative and quantitative leap in the diffusion of diagrams in Sufi literature was paralleled by the spread and reception of Ibn ‘Arabī’s (d. 638/1240) works in which diagrams are often employed.

This workshop aims at investigating to which extent the diffusion of visual elements was one of the chief novelties and specific features of Sufi literature to develop in the Late Medieval and Early Modern period. Acquiring a clear and detailed understanding of this phenomenon will also help us investigate the dialogical interactions between Sufism and philosophical, alchemical and magical literatures in which analogous diagrams are often employed. Obtaining a better knowledge of the phenomenon I suggested labelling “Visual Sufism” will also permit us to address the question of possible intellectual osmosis, in particular with the Jewish Kabbalah, in which similar visual tools started to flourish at almost exactly the same time in works by authors who in many cases acted in an Islamicate environment, knew Arabic and were acquainted with Islamic philosophical literature (see Giulio Busi, Qabbalah Visiva, Turin 2005).

This invitation aims at bringing together for the first time a group of specialists in the field to contribute to a workshop and collected volume on the theme of Visual Sufism. Visual Sufism will be investigated from different angles through the lens of multiple authors who employed images and diagrams within their Sufi works. Preliminary questions for the workshop include the following: which hypotheses can be suggested about the use of diagrams in Sufi literature? Was this trend linked to specific historical contexts, to the rise of new disciplines, or the appearance of new styles, ideas, or theories in Sufism? Do the authors provide any theory (even embryonic) for the utilisation of diagrams in their texts? To which extent do the texts refer to the social environment in order to justify the use of diagrams? Was the use of diagrams related to specific topics and, if so, which are they? What can be said about the specific use each author made of diagrams? Are there various typologies of diagrams? Is the use of diagrams consistent in different works of an author? Is it possible to individuate interdependences between diagrams found in different works written by one or more authors (i.e. can we actually discern a shared visual language here)? Did the presence of diagrams play any role in the reception of the texts at issue? Can we asses an evolution and development of the use of diagrams in time and space?

Contributions on key authors such as Aḥmad al-Būnī (d. 622 or 630/1225 or 1232), Saʿd al-Dīn Ḥammūʾī (d. 650/1253), Faḍl Allāh Astarābādī (d. 796/1394) and Shīrīn Maghribī (d. 809‒۱۰/۱۴۰۶‒۸), have already been secured.

Contributions on Ibn al-ʿArabī (d. 638/1240), Ḥaydar Āmulī (d. after 787/1385), Bayezit Halife (d. 922/1512) or on any other Sufi author from the period 1200‒۱۶۰۰ who made use of diagrams and visual elements in their works are warmly welcome.

Workshop Organization

The workshop will involve a maximum of 8 presenters.
Each talk should be between 30 and 40 minutes long and will be followed by a 20-minute Q&A session.
The language of the workshop will be English.
Taking into account the topic of the workshop the use of PowerPoint is strongly encouraged.
Accommodation and travel costs will be covered by the Alexander von Humboldt Kolleg for Islamicate Intellectual History (1200‒۱۶۰۰).
After the workshop, the papers will be published in the form of a peer-reviewed volume, edited by Dr. Giovanni Maria Martini, to be published in the series Islamicate Intellectual History (Brill, eds. Shahzad Bashir, Heidrun Eichner and Judith Pfeiffer).

Time Frame

Please submit your proposal by October 31, 2017, including the title of the contribution, an abstract of about 500 words and a brief CV to giovannimaria.martini@uni-bonn.de.
The revision process will start immediately after the deadline and the results are expected to be communicated to the applicants by November 15, 2017.
The workshop will take place on Monday 14 May 2018 at the Alexander von Humboldt Kolleg for Islamicate Intellectual History (1200‒۱۶۰۰) at the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn.
The first draft of the full article will be due by August 20, 2018 (12,000‒۱۸,۰۰۰ words exclusive of the bibliography).

Human Rights, Migration, and Global Governance

For Secretary-General António Guterres, who was the High Commissioner for Refugees for a decade (2005–۲۰۱۵) before being elected to lead the UN, one of the most pressing issues currently facing the world body is the large-scale voluntary and involuntary (forced) movement of people across borders. While 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, political, economic, and environmental dysfunction and collapse in their own countries has driven a record high number of people to seek a safer or better life elsewhere. Equally present especially in the West, have been counter-reactions to immigration based on political, social, economic, and security concerns. One reason the United Kingdom is leaving the European Union, with Prime Minister Theresa May triggering “Brexit”, is because of voters’ concerns over the perceived threat of uncontrollable migration. President Trump likewise won office in the US election in part by appealing to many American voters’ fears of immigrants – whether from Mexico (the ‘wall’) or from conflict zones such as Syria.

The global governance and human rights issues in this contemporary era are manifest and complex. The Sustainable Development Goals will be impossible to achieve in the context of state failure, political conflicts, major climate disruptions, and mass population displacements. The rights of citizens also must be balanced against the rights of those fleeing persecution and desperation; more often, the latter are disregarded as populist movements refocus national discourses away from cosmopolitan ideals. These complex ‘wicked problems’ present severe contemporary challenges for the institutions, as well as the idea (and ideals), of global governance.

We welcome proposals for individual workshop papers and full workshop panels addressing the following themes related to these dynamics, as well as other proposals related to topics of the United Nations, global governance and human rights:

>  Is support for global governance institutions, and for global human rights norms, declining as a result of resurgent populist movements?

>  Has support for the international refugee regime declined?

>  What global governance and human rights challenges arise from the increasing mobility of people?

>  What are the links between development, migration and human rights, and how do these relate to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals?….. ادامه مطلب
