EUME Berliner Seminar

EUME Berliner Seminar

The Berliner Seminar serves as a bracket for the 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-studies form of academic exchange and work. The seminar program is developed in exchange with Fellows, alumni and members of EUME and is open to all interested scholars.

On the basis of individual research cases, broader questions of the common agenda of EUROPE IN THE MIDDLE EAST – THE MIDDLE EAST IN EUROPE are debated. The seminar facilitates the development of innovative approaches in relation to key questions of the humanities and social sciences. It also allows Fellows of EUME and other participants to think and rethink their research questions and preassumptions in exchange with colleagues from other disciplinary or geographical backgrounds. The Berliner Seminar has been established in 1997 in the framework of EUME’s predecessor program, the Working Group Modernity and Islam (AKMI), and since then has been convened during the summer and winter terms almost every Wednesday at 17.00.
