        Subject: Vacancy: Early Stage Researcher (ESR) position in the Marie Sklodowska Curie Action


The deadline for call for positions for early stage researchers (ESR) in
the Marie Sklodowska Curie Action is extended until june 15^th . The
MIDA-project rests on the premise that digitisation and technological
innovations have a tremendous impact on Islam, the effects of which are
diverse and ubiquitous. They include first and foremost modes of
expression and communication of religious messages and traditions and
modes of engagement with society. Digitisation and concurrent
innovations as they emerged in the past decades belong to the list of
comparable fundamental technological transformations in human history
such as the invention of paper, printing technology, steam power,
electricity and telecommunication, which constituted major upheavals,
even if these were not experienced in all societies and by everyone at
the same time, in the same way.

MIDA assesses these developments in all their dimensions by formulating
three major questions. How does digitisation :

   * shape Islam (i.e. beliefs, practices, societies, activism, political
     organisations, social institutions, and outlooks);
   * modify the relation Muslims have with their past;
   * modify and reorganise scholarship and research on Islam.
