ANNUAL PROGRAM 2016

The German-Arab Research Partnership “The Maghreb in Transition” (LMU) is happy to release its Annual Program for 2016.

In 2016, our project focuses on a number of classical and contemporary approaches to study the nexus of media, knowledge and power. The program is structured in three intensive workshops, each dedicated to a particular subject, as well as an opening and a closing session that take place in Munich and in Tunis respectively. The program’s overall objective is to accompany its participants in pursuing an individual or collaborative research project whose results are eventually published in 2017. For each session, a detailed schedule will follow. In the meantime, please reserve the following dates:
