Governing the Family through Religion in Post-Kemalist Turkey

  • Starts: 4:00 pm on Monday, April 11, 2016
Recently, Turkey has experienced an explosion of faith based initiatives aimed at “strengthening the family.” The Directorate of Religious Affairs, a state institution, has become a conduit for a variety of otherwise secular professional and social services targeting families. This talk explores how the family has recently become a key site for the reconfiguration of state-Islam relations in Turkey.

The event is free and open to the public.

Cosponsored by the Institute on Culture, Religion and World Affairs (CURA)
