Conferences Date07 Oct 2017 15:00 - 15 Oct 2017 23:59
CreatorDr. Ayşe Çavdar
In her presentation, Ayse Cavdar discusses how ethnography, with its methodological focus on the story of religion and pious person, could contribute to the societal peace. Departing from the dense and tense relationship between the acts of believing and knowing, she discusses if studying the individual stories and the "common" psychology could open a new space for a political dialogue among the polarized segments of society. The aim of the presentation is also discussing the inevitable political setting of the field research in the social sciences.
