Perception of Eastern Religions in Europe

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The issues of globalisation, intercultural relations, migration crisis and ecological crisis are among the most challenging problems that Europe is currently facing. In their core lies the issue of identity-otherness dual. The present project attempts to address these problems in an innovative way seeking to understand whether the current situation in Europe leads to transformation of the dominant European worldview and whether and how Eastern religions influence this process. Therefore, the aim of the project is to investigate the contemporary interrelation between Europe and Eastern religions. The project combines study in the fields of comparative philosophy and religion, as well as philosophy, sociology and anthropology of religion. It has three major objectives: (1) a research objective, (2) an educational dissemination objective and (3) career advancement objective. The general research objective is to write a book with a working title “Eastern religions in Europe” investigating why and how Eastern religions penetrate and exist within the European worldview and society. The educational dissemination objective is to contribute to development of a tolerant attitude to otherness. Enrichment and extension of research, teaching and organisational skills and abilities of the researcher through the proposed research and training will contribute to her professional development, career advancement (full professorship) and development of new BA and MA courses at home University on religious and cultural interconnections between East and West.

Hybrid European-Muslim Identities

Year 2008
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
"Hybrid, e.g. transcultural, bipolar, multi-facetted, identities have become a self-evident part of the life-world in Western countries of immigration. At the same time anti-Muslim attitudes remain at an all-time high over the course of the last decade. This project takes Muslims as an example by which to analyze hybridity through frames of reference within the self which, in the eyes of the mainstream society, are being perceived as antagonistic. Since Muslims in Germany are able to bridge two systems of reference which are being perceived as mutually exclusive in a large part of Europe, the reference group ""Muslims"" can help in explaining the central attributes of hybridity. Hybridity appears in situations of cultural crossover, whereby partially antagonistic contents and logics from different cultural, social or religious life-worlds are being shaped into new patterns of thinking and acting. Traditional criteria of belonging are being put into question, a delocalization of identity can be noted. This creates a friction and energy which can cause new boundaries to be drawn, but can also cause a renovation of outdated social structures. Hybrid identity, in the sense of Edward Said, is thereby understood as variable, contextual and constantly changing. A dynamic play of identities develops in a complex structure of multi-belonging. A transdisciplinary approach combines political science with social psychology, the sociology of religion and communication theory, and enables the establishment of a theoretical frame of analysis. Through it the project will scrutinize the question why people with a Muslim migration background often do not identify Germany/Europe as a home even after many decades of immigration. Moreover, it wants to understand how the reproduction of 'foreignness' and 'othering' over generations can in fact lead to new, dynamic models of identity. In 2013 the project was extended until 2015."

Muslim Antisemitism in Colonial Morocco

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
European colonialism in Muslim societies represented a turning point for the powerful European influence that was widespread throughout the Middle East. With European Jews acquisition of land in Palestine, Arab nationalism started to incorporate antisemitic ideology into their texts and discourses. The creation of the Jewish state in 1948 accelerated this process. Thus, paradoxically, while the presence of antisemitism among European societies has been marginal since the end of World War II, socially and politically discredited, and even prosecuted, antisemitic voices have gained ground in the Middle East. With the immigration of the North African populations (both Jewish and Muslim) from the second half of the twentieth century, some conflicts have arisen in Europe as well, particularly, but not exclusively, in France. Therefore, the colonial period is crucial to understanding not only when, how and why European antisemitism entered northern Africa, and later returned to Europe, but above all how it interacted with the local notions and prejudices about Jews in Muslim societies. Further research is required to analyse in detail what the integration of a foreign ideology means and involves for native popular ideas and local prejudices. In this research project, the researcher will address these issues through historical anthropology and ethnography in the context of inter-religious relations in Spanish Colonial Morocco.

East-Asian Buddhism in Post-Apartheid South Africa

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Explorations of Buddhism in Africa are very few and have been so far conducted at the introductory level. Moreover, in the field of religious studies there is still a marked tendency to reduce the globalization of Buddhism to its worldwide missionary activities, and to neglect crucial factors such as the impact of deterritorialization and hybridization. BUDDHISMAFRICA aims to break new ground in this field of research by approaching these dynamics from an interdisciplinary perspective at the intersection of religious studies, sociology, anthropology, media studies, African studies, East Asian studies, gender studies, and global studies, as to provide for the first time a comprehensive and detailed analysis of East Asian Buddhism in South Africa, with a focus in the post-apartheid period (1994-present). BUDDHISMAFRICA has three research objectives, which will be pursued through ethnographic (participant observation, in-depth interviews) and archival research: 1) To analyze the trajectory of East Asian Buddhism in South Africa and its hybridization at the organizational/individual level. 2) To investigate the degree in which East Asian Buddhism has been able to reach out to black people, and to provide them with maps to navigate race and cultural identity. 3) To clarify the impact of informal spiritualities related to East Asian Buddhism on the South African religious context. BUDDHISMAFRICA will disseminate the research findings through peer-reviewed open-access publications (two articles and one monograph), an international workshop (and the publication of its proceedings), public talks for non-specialists, and project updates through the traditional/social media. Moreover, BUDDHISMAFRICA has put in place a detailed training program that is aimed, in collaboration with the supervisor/internal advisors and through the participation in dedicated workshops, to develop the applicant’s interdisciplinary, research management, teaching, and interview skills.

Neo-Ottomanism? New Strategies of Turkey and the Impact of Foreign Aid to Post-War Cultural Reconstruction in the Balkans

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This project seeks to find out how foreign assistance in the fields of culture, religious revival and education change regions ravaged by inter-ethnic violence and state breakdown, and how such foreign assistance is perceived locally. My case study is the assistance provided from the Turkish Republic to Bosnia-Herzegovina, and local responses to it. The empirical research will focus on Turkish aid in the areas of higher education, religious studies, and the rebuilding of Ottoman-era monuments. This project sets the analysis of the impact of Turkish aid in the Balkans in the context of the revival of the concept and debates on Neo-Ottomanism in the region and globally. The analysis poses following questions: How do the interpretations of the historical legacy of the Ottoman Empire in the post-Yugoslav region correspond with actual policies of aid that the Republic of Turkey provides as a major donor, especially for post-war reconstruction projects in Bosnia-Herzegovina? What sort of changes in the political and popular culture in the beneficiary country can we observe as a result of Turkish aid in the areas of culture, higher education and religious education, according to local responses in Bosnia-Herzegovina? What is the interaction between the fears of Neo-Ottomanism as an alleged expansionist and ‘Islamization’ program of Turkey in the Balkans and the anti-Turkish, anti-Muslim discourses as a recent characteristic of the populist rhetoric in several European Union states?

Dreamings, Songlines and the “Cult of Heritage”: Tourism Development and Aboriginal Culture in Broome, Western Australia

Year 2011
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This project analyses tourism development in relation to social policy in Broome, Western Australia. Tourism is the largest and fastest growing industry in the world and therefore a major field in the area of globalization. Social policy is an integral part of this growing market space. The central question is how images of Aboriginal culture and environment change through tourism impact and how these changes affect minorities and their political representation in Australian society. The primary research site is the town of Broome and the Lurujarri Heritage Trail in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The trail follows an Aboriginal song cycle along the Indian Ocean coast. It originated from the Dreamtime Ancestral Beings who in Aboriginal culture are believed to have created the landscapes, humans, animals and plants, all of which are interconnected by the same life spirit. The landscape, its narrations and imaginaries are compared with what people on different ends – government officials, social and economic entrepreneurs, minority representatives, tourists – have to say about their rediscovery and development for the tourism industry. By taking a ‘grassroots’ perspective the focus of the project is on people as key players in the field of tourism and social policy. The research is grounded in a collaboration between the Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia and the Institute of Social Anthropology and Philosophy (ISAP) at Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU), Germany. It is an integral part of initiatives to form an interdisciplinary research hub on Tourism, Globalization and Ethnicity at MLU in close collaboration with major research centres in the field, inside and outside of Europe. This research hub will link questions of cultural contact and knowledge production in tourism contexts with state of the art scientific discourse on sustainability, ‘environmental capital’ and heritage.

Fellowships in Advanced Cultural and Social Studies at the Max-Weber-Kolleg

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The MWK-Fellows programme financed by COFUND aims to allow excellent incoming researchers from countries other than Germany (in accordance with the EU-mobility-rule) to conduct their own, freely chosen, independent research projects in a highly competitive and intellectually vibrant research environment provided by the Max Weber Center for Advanced Cultural and Social Studies (Max-Weber-Kolleg). The Max-Weber-Kolleg is a high-ranking research centre which forms an avant-garde institution of the University of Erfurt. It is distinguished by a unique organisational structure – combining the features of an Institute for Advanced Study and a Graduate School – and a ‘Weberian’ research programme. The ‘Weberian’ research programme combines historical, comparative and interdisciplinary perspectives with an interest in normative issues in the social sciences. It has a focus on societal challenges of contemporary societies, especially (religious) plurality, cultural diversity and social order, processes of acceleration and growth. The core disciplines are sociology, economics, religious studies, law, philosophy and history, but MWK-Fellows programm is open for related areas as well. The Max-Weber-Kolleg is based on the principles of interdisciplinarity and internationality with a long-standing and progressively fine-tuned fellowship programme. By means of the COFUND-action Max-Weber-Kolleg will not only increase the number of international fellows but include a new intersectoral dimension into its fellowship programme. At the Max-Weber-Kolleg, MWK-Fellows will enjoy the best possible support and an opportunity of being connected with larger research projects. Nevertheless the applicants’ freedom of choice of the research project is fully guaranteed. The MWK-Fellows programme will improve international high-level research and science with and for society and will contribute to the fostering of the European Research Area (ERA), especially in the field of societal challenges.

The Senses of Islam: A Cultural History of Perception in the Muslim World

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The aim of SENSIS is to write a cultural history of the senses in Islam, by examining how the senses have been conceptualised, and calibrated, in a variety of Muslim environments. Sensory perception is not only a physical but also a cultural act: how people experience and understand sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch differs according to the historical, geographical, social and intellectual contexts in which perception occurs. Accordingly, this project comprehensively studies the Muslim sensorium, past and present. The topic is timely and important because (1) questions relating to the sensorium inform, and often complicate, intercultural encounters as well as inner-Muslim debates over identity and alterity; (2) there is a critical need to examine the scholarly contention that Islam’s alleged denigration of vision undermines its ability to modernise; and (3) the hackneyed notion that Islam celebrates the senses, as opposed to a disembodied, rationalised West, is likewise in need of a thorough revision. No sustained, comprehensive reflection on these issues exists in current scholarship, whether in historical-critical, text-based Islamic Studies, the field of study in which this project is primarily located, or in any of its cognate disciplines. Researchers in SENSIS (PI, 2 postdocs, 2 PhDs) will study the topic diachronically through the centuries as well as synchronically across diverse traditions of thought in Islam (in five subprojects: epistemology, mysticism, ethics, law, and aesthetics), thereby avoiding a monolithic, essentialising account of Islam’s attitude toward the senses. The project combines textual approaches in Islamic Studies with methods and theories from religious studies, anthropology, and the emerging field of sensory history. Additional financial support is solicited to facilitate five interdisciplinary workshops, each devoted to a sense organ, as well as a concluding, synaesthetic conference on the senses in Islam.

Strengthening European integration through the analysis of conflict discourses: revisiting the past, anticipating the future

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
RePAST aims at investigating how European societies deal with their troubled pasts today through the analysis of conflict discourses rooted in those pasts, with a view on the impact of those discourses on European integration. It will implement actions and propose strategies, both at the levels of policy-making and civil society, for reflecting upon these discourses to strengthen European integration. The project addresses directly the specific challenge and scope of the topic CULT-COOP-02-2017, focusing on civil society, informal education and political discourses. The methodological approach of RePAST is based on (i) multidisciplinarity, (ii) cross-country comparative analysis and (iii) innovative actions for citizens’ engagement with troubled pasts. First, conflict discourses rooted in troubled pasts will be studied in four fundamental spaces of civil society and sources of informal education: (a) history (oral and official), (b) media (journalistic- and citizen-led media), (c) art and culture, (d) politics (formal and informal politics). It will also take into account how the current crisis in its multiple forms (economic crisis, refugee crisis, political crisis) mediates these narratives. RePAST brings the various disciplines in dialogue with each other on the ground of an empirical study across the geographical and historical spectrum. Second, RePAST will study comparatively eight cases of countries whose troubled pasts sit squarely on legacies that still endanger European integration today: Cyprus, Germany, Poland, Greece, Bosnia, Kosovo, Ireland, and Spain. Lastly, RePAST emphasizes the active engagement of memory agents through a series of innovative actions for creating participatory experiences, i.e. interactive storytelling, research tool for analysis on memory and conflict, workshops for cultural tourism professionals, a treasure-hunt game to discover troubled pasts, and digital games for renegotiating troubled pasts.

Spirits of Displacement and Diaspora

Abstract
Spirit possession cults puzzle Western observers, particularly when they appear in supposedly secular urban environments. Muslim migrants from North Africa, seeking to establish new lives in Southern Europe, have to negotiate the continuity of such ritual practices with the constraints and expectations imposed on them by their new social contexts. But the legitimacy of these cults is contested also in their homeland, where they face increasing pressures by religious fundamentalism. Space and its organization, especially in urban settings, play an important part in these disputes. In Morocco, spirits are thought to reside in particular places, such as tombs, sanctuaries, or street corners. How do possession cults continue to be practiced when spirits’ spaces of residence have to be abandoned or undergo demolition? This research compares the continuities and ruptures in cult performances as the spaces that host them are affected by both forced displacement and voluntary diasporic migration. I will observe the resettlement of a slum in Casablanca, and compare it with two Southern European neighborhoods where Moroccan practitioners of spirit cults struggle to maintain their specific version of Islam in multicultural, post-colonial and post-secular urban settings, exposed to disruptive processes such as gentrification. By applying an ethnographic methodology to comparative urbanism, I aim to shed light on how different spatial transformations affect ritual performances that are meant to protect communities from social disintegration. I argue that different urban policies on both sides of the Mediterranean mutually reinforce, resulting in an overall transformation of cultural practices in transnational communities. Examining how migrants adapt localized ritual practices such as spirit possession cults to increasingly transient urban settings, furthers our understanding of the spatial and cultural dimensions that enable or prevent integration.
