Fotoausstellung: Framing Muslims

10 Fotografen | 10 Länder | 20 Bilder

Ein Bild sagt mehr als tausend Worte, heißt es, und doch vergessen wir oft, dass wir mit Fotos nicht nur Realitäten abbilden, sondern diese auch schaffen. Im Akt des Fotografierens machen wir uns ein Bild von der Welt. In jeder Aufnahme wird auch etwas ausgeblendet.

Was als „muslimisch“ klassifiziert wird ist häufig gottesfürchtig, überwiegend männlich und uneingeschränkt traditionell. Ausnahmen bestätigen entweder die Regel oder reduzieren ihre Motive auf Formen des Protests und der Grenzüberschreitung. Das Ziel dieser ethnographischen Fotoausstellung ist es, alltägliche, banale, zum Teil unterrepräsentierte Aspekte des Lebens in islamisch geprägten Gesellschaften einzubeziehen. Die Fotografien zeigen die Komplexität alltäglicher Erfahrungen: konfliktträchtige Gebiete werden Orten gegenübergestellt, an denen das Gebet und das Bedürfnis nach Vergnügen und einfachen Freuden Hand in Hand gehen. Hinzu kommen Bilder von muslimischen Gemeinschaften im Dialog mit der nichtmuslimischen Mehrheit und von Situationen, in denen das Muslim-Sein der Dargestellten gegenüber ihrem Mensch-Sein in den Hintergrund tritt.

Das Projekt „framing muslims“ dokumentiert zugleich das breite Spektrum an regionalen und kulturellen Schwerpunkten, die die Vielfalt der Forschungsprojekte an der Berlin Graduate School Muslim Cultures and Societies ausmacht.

Call for Presentations : "Theory matters!?"

In this workshop, we want to address the question of modernity as one of the most decisive theoretical challenges for the humanities until date. Critically discussed since decades, terminologies and contextualization remain hazy. Focusing on South Asia as a crucial point of reference for the formation of European modernity and its claims, we want to examine the impact of altering theories of modernity for the academic as well as the public/political sphere.

Format

Diverging from our usual format, this workshop will open with short introductory presentations by the two moderators, after which everyone attending is invited to prepare a 3-5 min presentation, addressing one or more of the following questions:

  • One modernity or many? How do we define and where do we locate modernity?
  • Is there a difference between the content and the form of modernity?
  • Do we (still) need one or more theories of modernity?
  • Does the theory of modernity matter for its practice?
  • Does 'the' modernity have an agency?
  • What is the relationship critique of society and the critique of modernity?
  • Does an up-to-date academic contribution require the engagement with modernity?
  • How do we deal with modernity's discontents?
  • Is 'classical' modernity theory a European / German enterprise?
  • Where is the place for a critical academic today?
  • Does / in how far does gender matter?

 

Speakers will have the chance to intervene with their contributions at any time in the workshop. A speakers' list will be moderated. All those interested are welcome to attend and participate in the discussion (no registration required unless you are preparing a short presentation).

Waterspace, Empire and Mobility in Southeastern Asia, IAAW-Workshop-1, Friday, June 14, 2013

You are cordially invited to the Workshop 'Waterspace, Empire and Mobility in Southeastern Asia' which will take place on the 14th June, 2013, Invalidenstraße 118, Room 217, 14-20h.

The recent spell of economic growth in India, China and countries across Southeastern Asia, have mostly impacted the Himalayan-Tibetan watershed. Thousands of large and smaller dams, completed or projected, on the Brahmaputra, Irrawaddy, Salwin, Mekong and Yangtze, among others, are set to alter the waterspace of the region in an unprecedented manner. Yet just about half of the world’s poor population depend either directly or indirectly on this watershed.
How do historians and social scientists grapple the qustion of maintaining ecological value of the waterspace amid the desire for ecnomic growth in Asia? This broader question would be discussed in this workship at the Institut für Asien- und Afrikawissenschaften at Humboldt-Universität Berlin. The IAAW seems to be a fitting place to engage this question as its different departments represent scholars of Central Asia, South Asia and Southeast Asia where this watershed touches.


In this broader context and platform, the workshop would seek to examine trans-regional forces of the watersapce. In particular, it will study the river as a force of environmental, economic and cultural integration in the territories spanning Bangladesh, India (Northeastern provinces), Myanmar, China (Yunnan) and Southeastern Tibet as well as mainland Southeast Asia.
So far policy-makers, environmentalists and civil society activists have mostly based their approach to rivers on the externalities of the impact of interventions into the river systems, leaving the question of the river as a force in itself less focused. It may be argued that the interactions and exchanges of people, commodities and ideas around the watersapce of this region have given rise to a distinctive integrative force which must be taken seriously. Through such attempt to restore the value of the river as an integrative force, this workshop will seek to recover the ‘transnational self’ of the river. In doing so, the workshop aims to highlight the aspects of ecological “commons” as inherent in these rivers against the development practices that are spatially framed within the bounded space of the postcolonial nation-state.

  • Klara Feldes: The Polavaram Dam in Andhra Pradesh: a Project of “Modernity”
  • Olaf Günther: State-Community-Relationsships in the Amudarya Delta
