Monday – Wednesday, October 10-12: Internal seminar at Klitgaarden

The seminar will begin with lunch at Klitgaarden Monday 10 October at 12.00 and end with lunch on Wednesday 12 October. There will be two elements in the programme:

  1. Jan Dochhorn and Rubina Raja will present their research on Oriental Christianity and Sacred Space and Architecture in the Middle East.
  2. Detailed discussion and planning of future research activities in C-SAC. We will discuss which ideas and wishes the members of the center have and how we can create common research projects out of that. The board will also present their ideas about future projects. This will be an important opportunity for all members of the centre to include themselves in the future activities of the centre. We will of course also discuss how we can finance our research.

A detailed programme will be presented as soon as possible.

The centre pays all expenses connected with your participation in the seminar.

You must sign up for the seminar on 31 August at the latest, by e-mail to Anders-Christian.
