RomanIslam, the Center for Advanced Study, convenes the disciplines of comparative empire and transcultural studies. Our approach aims to compare transcultural acculturation processes in the historical region of the western Mediterranean with focus on the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa during the first millennium CE, or the so-called „Long Late Antiquity“, including the Early Islamic Period. The economically significant Iberian Peninsula and the Maghreb were peripheral regions, both in the pagan, later Christianized Roman, and in the Islamic Empire.
An excellent University degree (MA) in a relevant fields of Middle Eastern, and North African Studies or Studies on the Islamic Iberian Peninsula, excellent Arabic language skills, experience with Arabic historical primary sources, excellent knowledge of English, and French, are required.
The knowledge of further languages relevant for the study of the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa, such as Spanish, and Latin, etc. is advantageous. Experience in working with additional sources, such as archaeological, numismatic, and geographical material is welcome but not a requirement.
The applicant is expected to conduct doctoral studies in a field relevant to the region of the early Islamic Iberian Peninsula and North Africa/Maghreb (Ifriqiya) within the foci of the RomanIslam Center
