Hear, Here: Humanities Up Close

Making Place for Greek Islam
With the “Hear, Here” series, we aim to facilitate conversations around new research in the humanities. Faculty fellows at the Institute for the Humanities will discuss a part of their current project in a short talk followed by a Q & A session. Today: “Making Place for Greek Islam” with William Stroebel.

About the talk:
This talk will open a small window onto the history of Greek-Language Islam (Greek written in the Arabic alphabet by Greek-speaking Muslims of the Ottoman Empire). I try to make a place in literary history for this refugee literature, which has been uprooted from modern civilizational and national narratives in both Europe and the Middle East. What value can Greek-language Islam offer us today, amidst the ongoing border crises and Islamophobia in places like Greece, the U.S., and elsewhere?

About William Stroebel:
William Stroebel is a 2022-23 Helmut F. Stern Faculty Fellow at the Institute for the Humanities and assistant professor, classical studies and comparative literature.
