CENTRE FOR MIDDLE EASTERN
The Centre for Middle Eastern and Islamic studies at the University of Bergen (Senter for Midtausten- og islamske studiar, SMI) was created in 1988 to be an interdepartmental link between the staff and students at the University who worked on various aspects of the Islamic world within the humanities and social sciences; as well as to be gateway between the research groups in Bergen and the outside world.
The Middle East on the Internet
In addition to the University, Middle Eastern research in Bergen is also
carried out at the private Chr. Michelsen's Institute. It has close co-operation
with the University, and many of the Institute's younger scholars are
also registered for a degree here. We have therefore included research
information from Middle East scholars of the CMI, while we refer to the
Institute's own publications for a complete survey of their activities.
