Associate Professor of Political Science Morten Valbjørn has received a DKK 770,000 book grant from the Carlsberg Foundation. This gives him the opportunity to focus fully on his new book about Islamism. Has Islamism changed to such a degree that we need to rethink it? Morten Valbjørn asks. He will explore whether, why and how the different Islamist scenes in a new Middle East have been significantly transformed after the Arab uprisings, and examine to what extent this requires a fundamental rethinking of the scholarly approaches to Islamism.
