The research workshop aims at presenting a fresh perspective on one of the most controversial issues in the context of the Israeli-Palestinian relations, namely the presence of Jewish settlements in the West Bank. The workshop  aims at exploring less conventional approaches and angles that go beyond the immediate politico-diplomatic dynamics and impact of Israel’s settlement policy by bringing together different perspectives, disciplines and methodological approaches to the subject. We therefore invite contributions focusing on (although not necessarily limited to): the identity of settlers; the spatiality and the political economy of settlements; the comparative study of settlements.

Panel: "Forming the Modern Muslim – Islam, Education and the Individual in the Muslim World",  World Congress for Middle Eastern Studies (WOCMES), Ankara, 18-22 August 2014

This panel calls for contributions about the making of contemporary Islamic education by political elites and state-employed intellectuals, Islamic revival and education movements like the Muslim Brotherhood, or independent Islamic preachers and educators. How does educational thought and practice reflect the wider context of ideas about national citizenship, economic agency, and the modern individual? Which are the various sources of tradition and modernity that go into the often complex and contradictory process of formulating specifically Islamic models of education?

Please send a 250-word abstract (English and French welcome) following the guidelines of WOCMES 2014 to Sebastian Elsässer elsaesser@islam.uni-kiel.de. Deadline: 20 January 2014.

Panel: "Urban Restructuring and Urban Policy in the Arab World", World Congress for Middle Eastern Studies (WOCMES), Ankara, 18-22 August 2014

During the last decade, many major cities in the Arab World have faced huge processes of restructuring and renovation.

Freie Universität Berlin (Research Unit Intellectual History of the Islamicate World) and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem solicit applications for the fourth German-Israeli Summer School, funded by the Einstein-Stiftung, Berlin.

The purpose of the School will be to familiarize the student participants with an integrative approach to the historiography of intellectual developments in the medieval, post-medieval and early modern period. Such a methodology requires first of all that the various intellectual histories be read together in order to analyze the ways in which their thought was formed and fashioned. Only such an integrative approach can allow us to fully grasp the various multidimensional flows of ideas and their respective transformation. [3] In addition to the philosophical/theological analysis of the material in question, the social aspects of the transmission of writings particularly beyond communal barriers shed an important light on the ways in which these processes of transmission took place
