Research themes

CBRL strives to be a leader in research on the Levant in humanities, social sciences and related fields.

We believe that rigorous, independent scholarship and its public dissemination contribute toward greater understanding of the Levant, for the common good.

We encourage applications for research in the following thematic areas, with the listed subtopics designed to be indicative only – proposals on other topics will be assessed on their merits – and subject to change over time. Disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches are equally welcome.
