The Chair of Dialogue between Cultures (Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University / al-ImamMuhammad bin Saud University) is offering a postdoctoral fellowship from September 1st 2016 to June 30th 2017 to support research and organize training on:

The role of media in the relations between Europe and the Arabian Peninsula

Application before: June 26th 2016.

As recently emphasized during Arab Spring, media are now playing a role that cannot be overlooked in the relation between Europe and the Arabian Peninsula. Newspapers have been circulating between Europe and the Arab World from the 19th century and Europe is still the home for great Arab newspapers. During the WWII, European radios were broadcasting programmes specially conceived for war propaganda. Current broadcasting of such global channels as BBC, France 24, al-‘Arabiyya and al-Jazeera is also emphasizing the importance of media in the knowledge building about the other in Europe and the Arabian Peninsula.

The Chair is looking for a postdoctoral fellow whose research and publication projects are relating to media’s role (newspapers, radio, tv channels, weblogs) in the different fields of the relations between Europe and the Arabian Peninsula.

The research may be conducted in one or various scientific domains provided it emphasizes both sides of the relationship and it is built on solid media analysis.
