Entangled Religions is an interdisciplinary open-access journal, published online by the Käte Hamburger Kolleg Dynamics in the History of Religions between Asia and Europe as part of the Center for Religious Studies at Ruhr-Universität Bochum. The journal is edited by an international board of renowned scholars from the fields of Religious Studies, History, Sociology, Philosophy, Islamic studies, Jewish Studies, Buddhist Studies, and Sinology.
Research on the Ottoman Empire is a broad field full of intersections: between men, women, and youths; between poetic expression and political action; between languages, cultures, and religions; between peace, war, and genocide; between past and present—and last but not least, from an academic perspective, between history and literature. This six-week international lecture series at the University of Vienna brings together scholars from Turkey, Greece, France, Germany, and Austria to survey this broad field in all its richness and in light of the most current research questions.
