Long Night of Science 2016
The next Long Night of Science, an annual event in Berlin and Potsdam, will be held on 11 June 2016. Researchers from all the departments and institutes at Freie Universität are on hand to explain their innovative research. The BGSMCS will participate under the title "The Politics of Studying Muslim Cultures and Societies: Beyond Text and Context". The contribution of the BGSMCS combines reflections on both the chances that arise from the immense cultural, visual, geographical, political and socio-historical diversity of those societies in which Islam is a shaping force, and the pitfalls and methodological problems that come with conducting research in this field.
