Islam and Modernity in Turkey

English | 2011 | ISBN: 0230109829 | PDF | 270 Pages | 3.7 mb

To an extent rather unusual in the Muslim world, in Turkey Islam has largely been turned into a 'religion.' How did such an arrangement come about? Moreover, most observant Muslims in Turkey do not see such a conception and practice of Islam as illegitimate. Why not??Islam and Modernity in Turkey?addresses these questions through an ethnographic study of Islamic discourses and practices and their articulation with mass media in Turkey, against the background of late Ottoman and early Republican precedents. This ground-breaking book sheds new light on issues of commensurability and difference in culture, religion, and history, and reformulates our understanding of Islam, secularism, and public life in Turkey, the Muslim world, and Europe.
