The conference marks the end of the New Middle East project (NEWME) that started in 2012. NEWME has studied political and ideological trends in the Middle East at a time when old patriarchal and autocratic structures in the region have crumbled. Two main topics will be addressed at the conference by panels composed of NEWME researchers and leading international Middle East experts. The first topic addresses the current status of democracy and political Islam in the Middle East. The second addresses political implications of the challenges to patriarchal structures (gender and age hierarchies) in the region. ​

Religious discourse is a paragon of imaginative practice: Within religions, worlds beyond ‘this’ world are created and everyday realities are sacralised. [… ] Systems of meaning are transformed into sensual worlds, sensual worlds are translated into systems of meaning (cf. Traut & Wilke 2015). This IKOS and AESToR.Net conference focuses on storytelling in religious narrative cultures.
