Inhalt In many non-European research contexts, scholars’ primary category of analysis is often the region itself, or more specifically an “area” defined by a set of historical factors – Orientalism, colonialism, Cold war studies, among others. The proposed research colloquium, however, engages in a critical reading of the concept of “area studies”, and brings together tropes and ongoing debates in our respective disciplines (African, Chinese & Middle Eastern studies). By doing this, the colloquium will question the limits of the “region” as an analytical frame, and discuss alternative approaches offered by various fields in social sciences and global studies.

The research colloquium for doctoral students is co-offered by the programs of Near and Middle Eastern Studies, African Studies and European Global Studies (Elisio Macamo, Aline Schlaepfer and Ralph Weber) and takes place every two/three weeks.
