REL, Religioner i Tyrkiet. Mødepunkter, konflikter og tilhørsforhold (F25)

Kursusindhold

This course will introduce religions in Turkey historically and today, starting in the Ottoman Empire but focusing on the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. We will read a combination of literature about e.g. identities, reforms, practices, and political developments of relevance to religions in the region. We will examine a wide array of materials from various religious groups, congregations and movements, including e.g. different forms of Islam, Christianity and Judaism, such as Alevis, Sufis, Armenian and Syrian Christians as well as Sephardic Jews. The course’s teaching will primarily consist of an intense schedule during the first half of the semester, including a study trip to Istanbul as well as preparatory visits to relevant sites in the Copenhagen area. The study trip will, in addition to providing insights into the Turkish metropole’s religious diversity, offer opportunities for students who wish to do so to collect material for analysis in their essays and assignments, including ones that require inclusion of foreign languages, such as Turkish and Arabic.
