About the Project

Project term: April, 2013–March, 2016

This study, the second phase of the study of the same title conducted from 2010 to 2012, analyses the reality of human mobility and the expansion and transformation of urban spaces in six Middle-Eastern cities: Beirut, Aleppo, Jerusalem, Cairo, Istanbul, and Tehran, to reveal how multi-ethnic and multi-religious relations have formed and how these relations have affected modern political and social movements in the region. The objective of the second phase is to understand mobility and ethnicity in relation to multi-layered time and space encompassing cities, their backlands, and wider relevant areas, using the multi-layered basemap system. The Japan Center for Eastern Studies in Beirut and the Research Institute for Languages and Cultures of Asia and Africa (ILCAA) will take turns hosting seminars.
