Freedom through submission

My PhD project is a Foucault-inspired Foucault 09analysis of the discourse on human freedom among Danish Muslims. The analysis is supported by anthropological fieldwork and qualitative research methods. The research started in September 2016, and will be concluded by September 2019, with a monograph (provisionally) titled: “Freedom through submission: the discourse on human freedom among Muslims in Denmark”. It is part of the ITN (Innovative Training Network) “The History of Human Freedom and Dignity in Western Civilization”, a research collaboration between 6 universities and 9 non-academic partner organizations across Europe. The participating universities are Aarhus University, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Martin Luther Universität Halle-Wittenberg, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Univerzita Karlova v Praze, and University of Reading. In addition to these six universities, the ITN cooperates closelyFreedom go to hell 01 with nine non-academic partner organizations: Mohr Siebeck Verlag, Franckesche Stiftungen zu Halle, Verlag Walter de Gruyter, Lutheran Church of Middle Germany, Dean and Chapter of Canterbury, Aschendorff Verlag, Dar al-Kalima College of Arts and Culture, The Diocese of Pécs, Christian Heritage Institute, and Etikos Aps. The project traces the historical roots and transformations of the modern conception of humans as dignified and free beings, especially as met with in theological and philosophical traditions. The research is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under a Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant.
