Press kit

The public outreach of the Leibniz-Zentrum Moderner Orient (ZMO) is guided by the principle of not artificially constructing alienness. We oppose any scholarly and journalistic culturalization of global conflicts. With its diverse media consulting and various media appearances, the ZMO contributes to a differentiated view of the Muslim world. The results of the basic research on the interweaving of non-European and European history and culture are thereby essential for understanding current problems. In this sense, we prepare research results for the public discussion. Under the direction of Dr. Sonja Hegasy, our public outreach has made a name for itself since 2004 in sharing research results, also in the form of artistic positions and film programs.

In our Media Echo, you will find articles by ZMO staff members and texts for which the ZMO provided background information. You will find a list of experts  here.

We are also happy to provide photos for your work. A selection of pictures and our logo can be found in the download area.

We regularly publish  press releases to report on new research projects and results, as well as publications and particular events. Register with our press mailing list to keep informed!
