The working paper series 'Academia in Transformation' aims to provide an insightful and illuminating view of the transformation of the academic landscape in the aftermaths of the uprisings in the MENA region. The events that started in 2010 in Tunisia have certainly reshaped the language of agents and scholars, contributed to a shift in study focus and sometimes challenged dominant theoretical approaches such as those on change and stability in the region. At the same time, many of the academic developments that have taken place in the context of the 'Arab Spring' both reflect and accelerate global trends.
The working paper series analyses if and how the academic discourse has changed and reflects how the still ongoing transformation processes shape lines of inquiry, methodological tools and academic institutions in different disciplines. The series includes contributions from AGYA members on linguistics, communication studies, political science, computer science, archaeology, philosophy, law and Islamic studies.
