Between Muslims: Religious Difference in Iraqi Kurdistan

February 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Visiting Fellow J. Andrew Bush discusses his recently published book, Between Muslims: Religious Differences in Iraqi Kurdistan. Bush’s book is based on extensive fieldwork in the Kurdistan region of Iraq between 2004 and 2013, combining ethnography and textual analysis to describe the ethical lives of Muslims who do not aspire to pious commitment.  Integrating textual analysis of poetry, sermons, and Islamic history into accounts of everyday life in Iraqi Kurdistan, Between Muslims illuminates the interplay of attractions and aversion to Islam among ordinary Muslims. Tamar Shirinian, Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, will join the webinar as discussant. Register at https://bit.ly/3ib9NRu.
