Research Associate: “Social Contexts of Rebellion in the Early Islamic Period” at the University of Hamburg
From the University of Hamburg:
The Emmy Noether project “Social Contexts of Rebellion in the Early Islamic Period” funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) will study four categories of revolt in the ‘long 8th century’ (c. 692-816 CE). These four sub-projects comprise i) rebellions led by tribal notables; ii) revolts that made claims to power in the name of the family of ‘Alī b. Abī Ṭālib; iii) Khārijite rebellions; and iv) non-Muslim/mixed uprisings. The project’s geographical scope is limited to the central lands of the early Islamic Empire; regions like Transoxania or North Africa (including Egypt) are outside its purview. The project will proceed on two levels: individual case studies carried out by the team members, and comparative analyses focused on the macro level of rebellion in the early Islamic period.
The application deadline is May 1, 2021.
