PSC 117 - (CC) Religion and Politics in Turkey

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course focuses on religious and political identities and institutions in Turkey as they have been formulated and contested throughout the late Ottoman Empire and Republican Turkey. We will study the religious history and the role of Islam as a cultural, societal and political force. Combining historical, sociological, and anthropological perspectives, the course aims to create a comprehensive picture of modern Turkey that allows for a deeper understanding of the country’s ambivalent relationship to its Ottoman past, the Western world, and the public role of Islam.
