Festschrift für Susanne Enderwitz
Going beyond the framework of a mere “Festschrift” in cumulative terms, this volume aims at contributing to recent discussions in the subject area of Middle Eastern studies focusing on individual and autobiographical voices discernible in pre-modern and contemporary Muslim societies. This approach reflects Prof Susanne Enderwitz’ seminal works on the topics of autobiography/autofiction and Islamicate expressions of identity. Among the contributors are Lale Behzadi, Michael Ursinus, Henning Sievert, Paula Schrode, Johannes Zimmermann, Ines Weinrich, and many others.
Sarah Kiyanrad teaches Iranian Studies at the University of Munich; she specializes in the material culture of Iran and the history of early Modern Persianate Societies.
Rebecca Sauer is researcher at Heidelberg University, focusing on Islamic cultural history.
Jan Scholz works as analyst at the Landeskriminalamt (state criminal police office) of Thuringia, where he focuses on different forms of Islamist extremism and on projects countering the latter.
