"On Crisis" with Ruth Mas

25.04.2016 | 10:00 - 12:00

A public seminar at the Berlin Graduate School of Muslim Cultures

This seminar examines how terror-producing discourses are key to the authorising of a secular-liberal politics of time. It examines how the latter maintain its progressive and homogenizing function by collapsing and reordering nonsecular temporalities and the embodied practices that these contain.

Ruth Mas is currently a visiting research fellow at the Berlin Graduate School Muslim Cultures and Societies (2015-2016). Her research commitments emphasize the intellectual and political dimensions of contemporary Islam. She is specifically interested in the secularization of the Islamic discursive tradition and the implications for thinking about power, secularism, Muslim subjectivity and technologies of Islamic selfhood. These issues are addressed in a book project entitled, On Secular Islam; Time, Power and Tradition in Contemporary Islamic Thought.
