The Islamic Intellectual Field and Political Theorizing in Turkey: Toward an Anthropology of Political Thought

Project description

Thinking about Islam-based political ideologies in Turkey

Over the past 20 years, Islam-based political ideologies and movements have been highlighted in European and international political scenes, including Turkey, which has been governed by an Islamic-conservative party. The EU-funded IslamPolTheory project will provide training through research by studying the intellectual foundations of political Islam in Turkey. Through an interdisciplinary study of leading journals and magazines, the project will identify the main intellectual alignments in the Islamic intellectual field along the Islamist-conservative divide. As a career development project, IslamPolTheory will be based on conceptual and methodological training toward developing the anthropology of political thought as a new field of research applicable in different contexts. The results of the project will contribute to further insight on Islam-based political ideologies, movements, and identities.
