Religion and Nationalism: An Intricate Relationship

Bard College Berlin Lecture Hall, Platanenstr. 98a, Berlin - Pankow

Guest lecture by Gülay Türkmen (University of Goettingen)

The relationship between religion and nationalism is quite complex. In this lecture we will focus on unpacking this complicated relationship through a discussion of the conditions under which religion and nationalism are fused, split or juxtaposed. Via four different case studies where the nexus of religion and nationalism is experienced in different ways, we will look at how religious nationalism transforms both the state and societal dynamics. 

Gülay Türkmen is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Goettingen’s department of Sociology. She is a comparative-historical and cultural sociologist with research interests that stand at the intersection of religion and politics. She is specifically interested in how certain historical, cultural and political developments inform questions of belonging and identity-formation in multi-ethnic and multi-religious societies.

The guest lecture takes place in connection to the course Nationalism led by Aysuda Kolëmen
