The ERC project HornEast aims at evidencing connections between the Christian societies of Nubia and Ethiopia on the one hand, and their Islamic environment on the other, on both local and regional scales. The thesis topic, under the supervision of Julien Loiseau (Aix-Marseille University), will be defined in consultation with the PhD candidate. He/she will investigate one case study of these connexions on the basis of a corpus of (mainly, but not exclusively) Arabic source material. Click here for the full Call for Applications (pdf).
