MENASHDoc Colloquium


The MENASHDoc Colloquium takes place once every month and addresses doctoral students and post docs doing research in the broad topical field to be circumscribed with "Sustainable Habitat Development". Organized by WANACU, it addresses research topic with a spatial focus on the target region of West Asia / North Africa.

Since October 2009, regular sessions have been carried out once every month. 15 to 20 participants attend the meetings on average in order to present their theses topics to each other, listen to presentations by external guests and have intensive discussions.

The Colloquium offers the chance for the students to get in contact with other the students working on similar topics and to network each other. Furthermore, participants can get in touch and network with the external guest who either represent TU Berlin activities in the target region or institutions based in the Berlin area that are active in the target region - or work on topics related to it, such as the ZMO (Zentrum Moderner Orient, Center for Modern Oriental Studies) or the Berlin Graduate School of Muslim Cultures.

 - Presentation by Soraya Adambakan (Iran): From Islamism to Post-Islamism in Iran: a change in Content and Strategy

Short summary of her work: “with the Iranian Revolution of 1979 and the establishment of a theocratic state in Iran the world witnessed a strong trend of Islamism in Moslem and non-Moslem countries which still holds up. However, a decade later some societal signs of change, along with emerging new religious discourses, were indicators of an ideological shift from the dominant Islamic thought. This transformation presented itself in an Islamic reform-thinking movement followed by a new feministic discourse among faithful Moslem women, called Islamic feminism which will be the focus of my presentation. “
