The new Center for Islamic and Middle East Studies was funded in June 2011. The center is a thematic oriented center situated at the Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages. The Centre for Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies seeks to promote understanding of political and cultural developments within the contemporary Middle East and North Africa, as well as the development of Islam from a broad perspective. Insights from research into linguistics and literature, the history of religion, history, anthropology and political science enable us to adopt an interdisciplinary perspective when studying a region and culture that is in a state of rapid change.
The Centre's geographical focus is the area from Morocco in the west to Iran in the east, and from Turkey in the north to Yemen in the south. We also study Islamic beliefs and practices in other parts of the word, including Norway. Research at the Centre is based on skills in key languages such as Arabic, Persian, Turkish and Hebrew.
