Dialogues on the Bosphorus: A Broken Bridge
Islam, Culture and Politics

Reset-Dialogues on Civilizations, Columbia Center for Contemporary Critical Thought, Columbia University Law School and Yale University are glad to invite you to attend the book presentation:


Dialogues on the Bosphorus: A Broken Bridge
Islam, Culture and Politics


The book Toward New Democratic Imaginaries–Istanbul Seminars on Islam, Culture and Politics gathers nine years of work and dialogues “on the Bosphorus,” edited by Seyla Benhabib and Volker Kaul. Reset-Dialogues has been forced to suspend the Istanbul Seminars ‘17 given the recent political developments in Turkey and the harsh restrictions of freedom of speech and the press. The book presentation is also an occasion to reconsider the place of Islam in politics in the aftermath of the Arab Spring and terrorism and to ask how to bring back civil liberties and human rights on the political agenda in the Muslim world.
