Self-description: “The Berlin Graduate School Muslim Cultures and Societies investigates the plurality, changeability, and global connectedness of Muslim cultures and societies. The area of study includes Muslim societies in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, as well as Muslim communities in Europe and North America. The Graduate School examines, in a systematic and comparative way, concepts, practices, and institutions variously understood as Islamic. Special attention is given to relations between Muslims and non-Muslims, as well as forms of inter- and intra-cultural communication.” Site contents: * BGSMCS (Programme of Study, Research Areas [Plural Traditions, Travelling Traditions, Rethinking Social Order, Governance Contested Sacred Topographies], Scholarships); * People; * Studying at BGSMCS; * Application; * Vacancies; * Partner Institutions; * International Partners; * Events; * Service; * Search.
