Blog of the week: CUMINet

This week's blog is CUMINet, which stands for Copenhagen University Middle East and Islam Network. CUMINet aims to allow Danish scholars working on ‘the modern Muslim world’ to communicate with an international audience.

CUMINet is an independent collective enterprise run and edited by the contributors. The target group for the blog includes students and scholars and secondarily of journalists, writers, opinion-makers, politicians, NGO associates, international organizations and, in general, anyone with an interest for the issues covered by the blog.

The blog encompasses diverse writings such as: op-eds, news analyses and presentations of academic projects, surveys and findings; links to news, discussions in other forums and items on other blogs; and announcements of lectures, public debates, cultural activities and publications.

The blog contributors shares a common background at The University of Copenhagen and ToRS, the ‘New Islamic Public Space’ research unit and the Research School for Regional Studies. However, CUMINet is an independent project in the sense that each contributor is responsible for his/her writings and that each post is representing the view of the contributor and not that of the university or its departments, nor the University Post.
