EUME Berliner Seminar
EUME Berliner Seminar
The Berliner Seminar serves as a bracket for all other activities of Europe in the Middle East — the Middle East in Europe and provides an interdisciplinary research environment, which is one of the strengths of any area-related form of academic communication. It is planned as a regular fortnightly event to give fellows and members of EUME, fellows of other programs at the Forum Transregionale Studien, fellows of the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin and scholars from Berlin’s universities and extra-university institutions an opportunity to meet and discuss their ongoing work.
On the basis of individual research cases, questions related to the common agenda of Europe in the Middle East — the Middle East in Europewill be debated. The Seminar facilitates the development of innovative ideas and research approaches in relation to key questions of the humanities and social sciences, which will have an impact on the ways research and teaching is undertaken. It also allows fellows of Europe in the Middle East — the Middle East in Europe a structured access to Berlin’s research environment and enables young scholars in Berlin to consider their work in a broader, interdisciplinary, and international context.
