About the Conference

Formations of Middle Eastern Subjectivities

Cultural Heritage, Global Structures and Local Practices

The Tenth Nordic Conference on Middle Eastern Studies will take place at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense, Denmark, 22-24 September 2016.

In the past decades, the exploration of the formation of modern subjectivities has developed into a core field of the humanities and social sciences. This strand of research is asking for social practices and codes; it investigates com- peting bodies of knowledge, social performances and emotions; interprets textual and visual forms of discourse; analyzes the interrelations of social practices with material artifacts and means of communication; observes in- dividual forms of subjectivity as well as the interaction in social fields and classes. Taking formations of Middle Eastern subjectivities as its departure point, the Tenth Nordic Conference aims to provide a broad platform for con- temporary research on the Middle East and Islam while focusing on the interlacements of cultural heritage, global structures and local practices.
