Played with percussive instruments, Qarqaba (large iron castanets), polyrhythmic clapping, and a three-stringed, bass lute-like sintir - Gnawa music draws on an abundant African-Islam history of ritualistic music believed to heal people possessed by jinn,…

After the collapse of the USSR, intellectuals from traditionally Soviet Muslim ethnicities began the complicated process of rethinking their religious identities, political philosophies, and worldviews. Although Western scholars often present this process as an unproblematic “return to Islam,” the newly religious thinkers of the 1990s engaged the rich philosophical universe of their time, incorporating and rejecting elements of New Age, occult, and esoteric systems in their efforts to formulate answers for the contemporary world. My paper focuses on the Tatars (the largest…

Far too often, the Middle East appears as doubly alien: out of place and out of time.

In this webinar, we will go beyond these stereotypes to look at the historical forces that shaped the region across the 20th century, and to understand the…
