In cooperation with the Orient Institute Beirut and the Goethe-Institut New Delhi the research group A6: Cultures of disaster has organised workshops. The first took place in Beirut in March 2010, and the second in New Delhi in March 2011. The first workshop examined the knowledge of The Hybridity of disasters in the Islamic Middle East, from the Middles Ages to the early twentieth century. The second workshop dealt with processes of glocalisation in perceptions, interpretations, reactions to natural South Asian disasters. In connection with the New Delhi workshop, the research group organised a photograph-exhibition of floods in Assam by photo-artist Kazu Ahmed.
