Dear Middle East in Praguers


We are pleased to announce a call for applications for the first annual "Identities in the Middle East Workshop" at the Institute of Near Eastern and African Studies, Faculty of Arts, Charles University. This year's workshop will be lead by Hasan Kayalı , Ebru Akcasu , and Stefano Taglia , and will deliberate late-Ottoman identities.


The aim of the workshop is for participants to gain a profound awareness of the conceptualizations and manifestations of individual, communal, national, and transnational identities in the last century of the Ottoman Empire. Participants are expected to actively engage in discussions generated by a set of common readings.


For more information about the application process, please click here: Late-Ottoman Identities: the National, Transnational, and Marginal .
