Workshop at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology (Sep 2017)

Workshop at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology from 7 to 8 September 2017: Conceptualizing the Bureaucratization of Islam and its Socio-Legal Dimensions in Southeast Asia: Anthropological and Transdisciplinary Perspectives

The first workshop of the Emmy Noether Research Group will explore the bureaucratization of Islam by bringing together a group of international scholars from various disciplines (Anthropology, Law, Area Studies, History, Film Studies) whose empirically grounded research focuses on multiple facets of state-Islam relations in contemporary Southeast Asia. The Group’s meta-analytic framework and its sub-projects will be presented and critically discussed with the invited experts, who will also present their own work-in-progress or a recent publication speaking to the Group’s epistemic interests. This workshop is designed to contribute to the group’s endeavor to conceptualize “the bureaucratization of Islam” as a social phenomenon from an anthropological perspective.
