The Berlin-based Forum Transregionale Studien is a research organization that promotes the internationalization of research in the humanities and social sciences. It is dedicated to a research agenda that systematically links disciplinary approaches and the expertise of area studies by focusing on entanglements and interactions across national, cultural or regional borders.
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 and outside of Berlin, it carries out research projects that examine other regions of the world and their relationship to Germany and Europe systematically and with new questions.
The Forum Transregionale Studien was founded in the fall of 2009 in the form of an association (articles of association) with its seat in Berlin. In its work the Forum follows the recommendations of the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat) and the Berliner Wissenschaftskommission (Berlin Commission of Science and Humanities) for establishing a forum for transregional studies (both 2006) as well as the internationalization strategy of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung/BMBF) (2008). ادامه مطلب

Zukunftsphilologie: Revisiting the Canons of Textual Scholarship
Zukunftsphilologie is a Berlin-based research program, which supports research in marginalized and undocumented textual practices and literary cultures with the aim of integrating texts and scholarly traditions from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East as well as from Europe itself. The program takes as its point of departure the increasingly growing concern with the global significance of philology and the potential of philology to challenge exclusivist notions of the self and the canon. The program encourages research in the following areas: the genealogy and transformations of philological practice, philology’s place in the system of knowledge (e.g. its relation to science, theology, and jurisprudence), philology and the university, and philology and empire. For a detailed description of the program and its past and current activities, please visit www.zukunftsphilologie.de.
Individual research projects should fall within the intellectual framework of Zukunftsphilologie. Projects should have a comparative perspective, whereby the plurality of textual practices, polyphonic textuality, and the trajectories and genealogies of philological traditions are explored. Research projects focusing on intellectual debates, polemics, correspondences, and transregional encounters are especially welcome. In revisiting important philological debates, the goal is not to merely evaluate the argumentative worth of these debates, but rather to reflect on the wider cultural and political context in which these debates emerged and how they have shaped our knowledge of the past. Moreover, an examination of philological debates will shed light on marginal philological traditions and undocumented intellectual positions as well as the ways in which canonical positions were consolidated and normalized.
Successful applicants will be fellows of the Dahlem Humanities Center at Freie Universität Berlin and the program Zukunftsphilologie at the Forum Transregionale Studien, and associate members of the Friedrich Schlegel Graduate School for Literary Studies. Through this association they will have access to an academic milieu of transregional, literary and philological studies as well as to libraries and other research facilities.

INTERNATIONAL SUMMER ACADEMY FOR DOCTORAL AND POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHERS
As a member-institute of the Max Weber Foundation – German Humanities Institutes Abroad, the Orient-Institut Beirut along with the Forum Transregionale Studien would like to invite scholars from the fields of Literature, Philology, History, Art History, Cultural Anthropology, History of Science and Musicology to apply for an international Summer Academy that will convene from 11 to 19 September 2014 in Beirut on the topic:
LANGUAGE, SCIENCE AND AESTHETICS – ARTICULATIONS OF SUBJECTIVITY AND OBJECTIVITY IN THE MODERN MIDDLE EAST, NORTH AFRICA, SOUTH AND SOUTHEAST ASIA
This Summer Academy offers early-career scholars an opportunity to follow up on the debates about modernity, its preconditions and its aftermath by focusing on the multifarious processes and often unique ways in which societies outside Europe have adopted, translated, rejected or produced the global, the modern and tradition since the seventeenth century. It places a specific focus on the notions of subjectivity and objectivity, the individual and the subject, as key notions of modernity, and addresses systems and practices of knowledge production, communication and authority as they developed in the region that extends from Morocco to Indonesia. The Summer Academy engages with the debates on the writing of a more global history by paying particular attention to changing textual and aesthetic practices and language policies. ادامه مطلب
