Les Thèmes

The Orient Network was founded by students in Freiburg in 2010, but it is not limited either to Freiburg or to students. The Orient Network arose out of the idea of giving students in the Freiburg School of Oriental Studies an opportunity to put their own projects into effect. It was intended to be a point of contact for questions about oriental religion, culture and society. It was also to give scientists a way to come down from their ivory towers and establish a connection between themselves and the real world.

The aim is to build up a nationwide German network, run by a varied group of members. So far, our members come from the faculties of Arab Studies, ethnology, German language and literature, history, Islamic studies, Jewish studies, politics, religion and Romance studies.

• Talks in schools: lesson plans and talks about the Islamic religion
• Islam in Badenese: this new project is intended to reach beyond the towns into the countryside and its people. We want to publish short articles and information about Islam in parish newsletters and local newspapers.
• Series of talks about Jewry: at present, four talks are planned, dealing with the Jewish religion in Germany and its political significance within Israel. The talks are aimed at people with no or little knowledge of Jewry, while offering a forum for those who have had an interest in the subject for a longer time.
• “A Taste of Freiburg”: here, the aim is to bring refugees and locals round the table, where they cook together and develop a taste not only for the cuisine of the other country, but also for its lifestyle.
• Women at Work - Career Management in Arabic and Islamic Countries: what career and promotion opportunities do women from Jordan, Palestine and Tunisia have? What job problems face them in their homelands? These are the questions addressed in the panel discussion "Women at Work".

Jan Wacker is the treasurer of the Orient Network.

On request we can offer other net participants advice, give a presentation, and provide up-to-date information and contacts in the field of our work.
