. Articles on “Culture” for the Peer-reviewed Online Journal “Middle East – Topics

of culture as used in the field of Middle Eastern Studies. What we want to discuss is the quality of the term itself, its ambiguity and complexity, its implications and dangers in public and academic discourse.

of the complete scope of heterogeneity to include elements that transform
 ethnic, religious, cultural and linguistic diversity of the Middle East and the
Caucasus into an intellectual necessity for comprehensively studying both regions.
