This conference is part of the activities of the Re-Configurations
research network at the University of Marburg. The
network—“Re-Configurations: History, Remembrance and Transformation
Processes in the Middle East and North Africa”—was founded by the
University of Marburg in the spring of 2013 with funding from the
Federal Ministry for Education and Research (Bundesministerium für
Bildung und Forschung, BMBF). Its founding was triggered by the
developments in the MENA region commonly subsumed under the term “Arab
Spring” which highlighted the need for a partial re-assessment of
scholarship on MENA countries, for developing new perspectives, and
deepening our understanding of the events unfolding in the region,
their underlying reasons, historic roots, and future perspectives. In
order to systematically analyse these ongoing transformations in the
region we have identified four research fields: History from below,
Re-configurations of cultural memory, Political transformations and
transitional justice, Transregional entanglements.
