Call for Papers: NISIS Spring School 2016

23 December 2015

From Monday 14 until Friday 18 March 2016, NISIS, in cooperation with AKMED, CNMS, IFEA, IISMM/EHESS, Koç University, NIT and RCAC, organizes its annual Spring School, which will take place in Istanbul. The overall theme of the Spring School is 'Reviving previous times and expanding horizons: Islam and modernity in global historical perspective'.

The Spring School invites to rethink the temporality and spatiality of modernity over a long time span and within enlarged geographies. It aims at pluralizing the notion of modernization, by trespassing usual national and civilizational boundaries.

PhD candidates, research master and advanced MA students active in the field of Islamic Studies are invited to apply for participation. Successful applicants will get to participate in the full program of the summer school, plus a €500,- allowance for travel and housing costs.

Deadline for applications: January 11th, 2016, 9:00 CET.
