Ort/Place: Raum 1.2058 (Holzlaube), Fabeckstr. 23-25, 14195 Berlin-Dahlem

Both presentations will be held in English.

The presentation "The Ottoman Age of Reform as Age of Piety?" will chart possible paths for revisiting the Ottoman age of reform through the study of Sufism and Ottoman politics and practices of piety. Building on the growing body of scholarship on the ‘Islamic foundations’ of the Tanzimat reforms and processes of confessionalization in the early modern Ottoman Empire, this project will explore possibilities of unearthing hitherto little understood dynamics and processes of political and religious mobilization by studying the missionary activities, networks, and writings of the puritanical Naqshibandi sufi order. Moreover, the presentation will discuss the many heuristic promises of combining a history of this sufi order with a history of concepts approach.

The study, "The Governance of Inequality: The Ottoman State and the Making of the 'Armenian Question'", investigates Ottoman strategies and practices of governance in three separate regions (Çarsancak, Zeytun, Muş), where the state attempted to integrate diverse relations of production and political structures into its administrative and extractive infrastructure. It focuses on the changing set of relationships between Ottoman institutions and Armenian communities."
