Call for Papers „Making Sense of Climate Change – Models, Cosmologies and Practices from North Africa and the Middle East”
8–9 June 2020, Leibniz-Zentrum Moderner Orient, Berlin
The Middle East and North Africa are, according to recent predictions, one of the regions most affected by global warming (IPCC 2014). Nonetheless, although some social scientists focusing on the MENA have addressed the issue (Sowers 2011, 2013; Barnes 2015), climate change is still widely absent in Middle Eastern studies and other disciplines relating to the region.
