Arabic Studies concerns the spoken language and written texts of the Arabic-speaking world. At the Free University of Berlin, Arabic Studies is a literary discipline that includes such subjects as Arabic poetry and prose literature of the pre-Islamic period to the present, as well as religious, philosophical, historical and geographical literature of Islamic culture as well as Jewish and Christian literature in Arabic.  Special emphasis is placed on the Koran as a key document of religious discourse in late antiquity, on the reception of classical antiquity in Arab culture, and finally, on modern literature as part of the process of global exchange. Focusses are the Quran as text or on classical Arabic literature. No focus at the moment on Arabic linguistics.
