CfP: 6th Young Researcher’s Workshop

For the sixth time the ZMS plans on bringing young researchers of different disciplines together in a workshop from 19. 04-11-17 until 04-13-17.

The mediterranean region is currently receiving great attention. Events like the Arab Uprisings, the crisis of southern Europe and the movements of Mediterranean migration have increasingly put this region in the focus of the public and scholarship.

The Centre for Mediterranean Studies (ZMS) at the Ruhr-University Bochum deals with contemporary questions and new approaches in the research of the mediterranean in the context of area studies. Now, for the sixth time the ZMS plans on bringing young researchers of different disciplines together in a workshop from 19. 04-11-17 until 04-13-17.

The workshop offers young researchers the possibility to present projects about the mediterranean in an interdisciplinary context, to discuss methodological problems and theoretical perspective and to exchange experiences and build networks. (See the report about the fifth ZMS workshop) Contributions from all fields of the humanities as well as cultural and social studies are welcome. For the first time the workshop will also explicitly discuss didactical questions of Mediterranean topics and the propagation of (historical) images of the Mediterranean.

The workshop takes place from 04-11-17 until 04-13-17. The conference language is German. Contributions in English are possible. Travel and lodging expenses can be covered or subsidized after prior consultation.

Please send your electronic application as a PDF file to the following address before 03-14-17: mittelmeerstudien@rub.de. Applications should include an abstract (about 500 words + five keywords) for an approximately twenty minute presentation as well as a CV of one or two pages.
