Attend: Jews and Christians between the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean: Co-existence and Conflict (10-21 July: Budapest)

Applications are being accepted for a postgraduate summer course, “Jews and Christians between the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean: Co-existence and Conflict,” to be held at Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, Hungary, 10 July - 21 July, 2017

CEU’s summer program invites applications from advanced Ph.D. and MA students, young researchers, advanced BA students (requires special approval). The call for applications will address students of history and culture as well as of contemporary studies in both the humanities and the social sciences, who would benefit from a deeper understanding and the reconceptualization of the present conflict zones.

The course ( will introduce its students to the ways in which Jews and Christians interacted in the Mediterranean, the Middle East, the Caucasus and the Indian Ocean in the period between 600-1800 CE. This is the topic of a research project aiming at establishing a new area of study – relations between Jews and Eastern Christian communities from the rise of Islam to the end of the eighteenth century, marking the colonial conquest of Mughal dominated India. Thus, Islam as a majority and as a minority religion constitutes the background against which the new picture on Jews and Christians is being painted. The study of inter-religious dynamics is anchored in the framework of medieval and modern cultural history concerning a vast geographical area that encompasses seemingly disparate lands from Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean, through West Asia and the Caucasus, to South India, all connected through trade and travel.

First application deadline: February 14, 2017.
Financial aid is available.
