[Opportunities] Call for applications for research grants in “Islamology”, Deadline-22 September 2023

The Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs (MEAE) and the UMIFRE network wish to support young researchers in Islamology by offering three-month field grants to Master’s students and six months field grants to the doctoral students/young doctors and wishing to pursue research in broadest sense in different regions of the world. Research on South Asia is particularly encouraged. Fellows will be hosted by member centers of the UMIFRE network and other research institutes partnering the program (see list of institutes concerned*).

For several years, the Centre de Sciences Humaines (CSH) in New Delhi has been engaged in extensive research on the history, political science, and sociology of the Muslim minority in India. Kindly refer to our Activity Report (pp. 26-35) for a detailed presentation of this work. https://www.csh-delhi.com/activity-report-2022-rapport-dactivite-2022/
