CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
10 POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2010/11

The Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, the
Fritz Thyssen Foundation and the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin
invite scholars to apply for ten post-doctoral fellowships
for the research program

EUROPE IN THE MIDDLE EAST - THE MIDDLE EAST IN EUROPE

This research program seeks to rethink concepts and premises
that link and divide Europe and the Middle East. The project
draws on the international expertise of scholars in and outside
of Germany and is embedded in university and extra-university
research institutions in Berlin.
'Europe in the Middle East – The Middle East in Europe' 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. 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) reexamining 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.

The program 'Europe in the Middle East - The Middle East in Europe'
is funded by the Fritz Thyssen Foundation. It supports and builds
upon the following interconnected research fields:

CITIES COMPARED: COSMOPOLITANISM IN THE MEDITERRANEAN AND ADJACENT REGIONS
This research group is directed by Ulrike Freitag and Nora Lafi,
both of the Zentrum Moderner Orient, Berlin. It contributes to
the debate on cosmopolitanism and civil society from the
historical experience of conviviality and socio-cultural,
ethnic, and religious differences in the cities around the Mediterranean;

ISLAMIC DISCOURSE CONTESTED: MIDDLE EASTERN AND EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVES
This research group is directed by Gudrun Kraemer, Institute
for Islamic Studies, Freie Universitaet Berlin. It analyzes modern
Middle Eastern thought and discourses in the framework of theories
of multiple or reflexive modernities;

PERSPECTIVES ON THE QUR'AN: NEGOTIATING DIFFERENT VIEWS OF A SHARED HISTORY
This research group is directed by Angelika Neuwirth, Seminar
for Arabic Studies, Freie Universitaet Berlin, and Stefan Wild,
Universitaet Bonn. It situates the foundational text of Islam and
early Muslim traditions within the religious landscape of late
antiquity and combines a historicization of their genesis with
an analysis of their reception and perception in Europe and the Middle East;

TRAVELLING TRADITIONS:  COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVES ON NEAR EASTERN LITERATURES
This research group is directed by Friederike Pannewick,
Centrum fuer Nah- und Mitteloststudien, Philipps-Universitaet Marburg,
and Samah Selim, Rutgers University. It reassesses literary
entanglements and processes of canonization between Europe and the Middle
East.

TRADITION AND THE CRITIQUE OF MODERNITY:
SECULARISM, FUNDAMENTALISM AND RELIGION FROM MIDDLE EASTERN PERSPECTIVES
This 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 the experiences, interpretations, and critiques of Jews, Arabs, and Muslims in the Middle East and in Europe.

PREREQUISITES AND APPLICATION PROCEDURE
