Texts in Context

The ZMO online series Texts in Context presents previously unpublished historical and contemporary sources from the ZMO research regions in original versions and with translation into German or English. The ZMO thus makes available primary materials that reflect important voices and discourses of non-European modernity and whose underlying debates shaped and continue to shape social life and political or religious interactions. Each of the texts published here is introduced by a short essay explaining the contexts and, where possible, the circumstances of their creation and, if known, providing relevant information about the author. A main task of the essay is to present the relevance and significance of the source text presented and to provide references to the relevant fields of research and scholarly debates.
