Workshop: Nationalism and Religion
Convenor: Nader Sohrabi
14-15 December 2017
Strohsackpassage (Nikolaistraße 8-10)
This workshop is open to all who explore the relation between nationalism and religion in the modern world from the nineteenth century to the present. The workshop aims to transcend the opposition between religion and nationalism and explore their interaction contextually. What are the changing forms of religion and nationalism through time, and under what local or global circum-stances do they become conflicting or mutually reinforcing rubrics for action and identity?
The workshop will be opened by a keynote on »Reluctant Nationalists, Imperial Nation State and Neo-Ottomanism: Turks, Albanians and the Antinomies of the End of Empire« by Nader Sohrabi (14 December, 5 p.m.). Paper presentations will start at 10 a.m. on 15 December. All presentations are public, listeners are welcome.
