Fasting and Beyond: Ramadan as a Multidimentional Phenomenon

Fasting and Beyond: Ramadan as a Multidimentional Phenomenon
Ümraniye Municipality 2012, Istanbul, Turkey
13th-15th July

Aims and Scope

Ramadan appears as one of the most dynamic social phenomena of our age, whether it is considered as a time period, a realm of religious experience, a cultural practice or an area of social interaction. Its dynamism, growing out of historical, cultural and religious sources, has extended to take on a much broader social significance by nourishing new practices of communication, interaction, solidarity and purification.

The objectives of the symposium are: to evaluate Ramadan as a modern social practice flourishing through the experiences of different cultures; to portray how Ramadan works as a social network; to make a critical analysis of the ways in which Ramadan is being Orientalized through its historicization and exclusion from daily life; to comparatively explore the experience of fasting with the practices in different religions; to examine the visual, auditory and textual representations of Ramadan as a scientific phenomenon from the perspectives of different disciplines; to study the political, psychological, and spiritual impacts of Ramadan on different social classes and groups; to question Ramadan’s effect on identity formation of individuals; to distinguish constants and variables by means of comparing the Ramadan experiences of traditional and modern Islamic communities; and to compare the perspectives of different disciplines on the meanings of fasting.

We welcome articles or proposals in Turkish and/or English from all perspectives and on all subjects in social sciences, humanities and theology.
