Speakers will discuss the volume Toward New Democratic Imaginaries – Istanbul Seminars on Islam, culture and politics. The book collects a selection of papers presented during nine year of Istanbul seminars organized by the association Reset DOC. The discussion will look beyond reductive definitions that ignore the historical evolution and varieties of Islamic doctrines and that deny the complexities of Muslim societies’ encounters with modernity. Are Islam and democracy compatible? Can we shed the language of ‘Islam vs. the West’ for new political imaginaries?
Discussion will be in Italian.
