Depuis les premières fouilles conduites en 1917 par Pierre Paris, premier directeur de la Casa de Velázquez, la ville de Baelo est devenue l’une des agglomérations de l’Antiquité les mieux connues de l’Occident méditerranéen. Ce résultat est le fruit d’un long travail de recherche et de publication presque ininterrompu depuis un siècle. Le dossier réuni ici présente les résultats des recherches actuellement menées par les différents spécialistes français et espagnols travaillant dans la ville romaine de Baelo Claudia et sur l’oppidum préromain de la Silla del Papa. Leurs découvertes bénéficient des importants progrès méthodologiques et technologiques qui ont accompagné depuis plusieurs décennies le développement de l’archéologie, et livrent ainsi une image renouvelée de l’histoire plus que millénaire du peuplement dans le détroit de Gibraltar.

Since the first excavations carried out in 1917 by Pierre Paris, first director of Casa de Velázquez, the town of Baelo has become one of the best-known ancient sites in the Mediterranean west. This is the outcome of a long history of work and publication that has gone on practically without interruption for a century. The dossier compiled here presents the results of ongoing research by various French and Spanish specialists working on the Roman town of Baelo Claudia and the pre-Roman oppidum of Silla del Papa. Their discoveries draw on the major methodological and technological advances that archaeology has seen in the intervening decades, thus bringing the history of thousands of years of settlement in the Straits of Gibraltar more up to date.

Innovative Training Network : MIDA « Mediating Islam in the Digital Age » 15 Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions in the Marie Skłodowska Curie Action // Deadline 1st of June 2019

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Innovative Training Network programs (ITN) are designed to combine scientific research with an intensive training trajectory for young scholars in order to equip them with the necessary comprehensive knowledge and skills. These researchers work in an inter-sectoral, interdisciplinary and international environment to deepen their knowledge and to find answers to pressing contemporary societal issues. An international consortium of research institutes, universities and non-academic partners has been awarded with a research grant from the Department for Research and Innovation of the European Commission in June 2018. MIDA is coordinated by the ‘Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique’ (CNRS) in Paris.

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.

It is commonly recognised that the digital revolution will indeed deeply transform human societies, much as the industrial revolution did in the nineteenth century. However, the rapid changes that are currently taking place generate a sense of loss of control and instability among the general public, politicians, journalists, academics, and, not least, among Muslims themselves. The spread of modern digital media and new technologies of communication, production and dissemination, prompts researchers and social actors, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, to make sense of, and understand these developments. Consequently, they have shaken up Islam as a field of academic study and have impacted on the ways Islam is to be studied in the future. The specificity of the current digital revolution calls for a re-evaluation of past situations and reflection on future prospects.

MIDA assesses these developments in all their dimensions by formulating three major questions: How does digitisation (1) shape Islam (i.e. beliefs, practices, societies, activism, political organisations, social institutions, and outlooks); (2) modify the relation Muslims have with their past; (3) modify and reorganise scholarship and research on Islam.

The MIDA project is to train 15 creative, entrepreneurial, and innovative researchers in social and human sciences through an interdisciplinary research programme, whose main objectives are to understand the tremendous influence that digitisation and technological innovations have on Islam.

The location is depending on which project the candidate applies for.
