07feb20:0021:30Virtual EventCivilization SG: Sezai KarakoçSezai Karakoç: The Idea of Civilization and "The Resurrection Thesis"

Group Details

The Civilization Study Group brings together and examines different aspects of the ongoing debate on the concept of civilization in the Islamic intellectual field in Turkey. We seek to explore both the genealogy of the concept of “Islamic Civilization” as it developed since the 1960s, and the emergence and evolution of the notion of civilizationism as a political ideology since the  1990s. The goal is to develop and present different aspects of this debate at the MESA 2022 conference, and later in a workshop toward the publication of a volume of collected essays.

Event Details

In this first meeting of the study group, Sezai Karakoç’s select writings on the concept of civilization will be examined and discussed. The readings were selected by Enes Ateş, as part of his work titled, “The Idea of Civilization and The Resurrection Thesis.”
