Religion Colloquium Series: "Hürrem Sultan: The Slave Who Became Queen of the Ottomans"


Leslie Peirce
Silver Professor of History,
New York University


What is it like to write a biography of someone about whom there is not much concrete evidence but an abundance of innuendo and blame? Known to Europe as Roxelana, “the Russian woman”, she was the slave concubine of Suleyman I (“the Magnificent”), who freed her and made her his wife, breaking multiple precedents to do so. Known as Hurrem among the Ottomans, she was blamed for Suleyman’s most controversial acts, while at the same time she was a great patron of charitable foundations built across the empire. This presentation will discuss some of the challenges and the pleasures of writing for a non-academic audience.

All are welcome!

"Moving from Deference to Insurrection: Compassion with Teeth"


In a recent op-ed, New York Times columnist Nicolas Kristof declared, “There is an income gap in America, but just as important is a compassion gap.” He, like many on the left, invokes compassion as a precondition for moderate reform, let alone societal transformation. Is he right? If so, what might a truly more compassionate America look like? Activist and Buddha On Strike founder Max Zahn will explore how compassion functions in mainstream politics, and explain how a particularly Buddhist notion of compassion can move radical politics beyond demonizing elites and toward altering the structures that empower them. To demonstrate a case study in the efficacy and challenges of intentionally compassionate political action, he’ll draw upon his recent 42-day meditation protest outside Goldman Sachs headquarters.

Christianity as World Religion, from Constantine the Great to Elizabeth I


When the Roman Empire changed its view of Christianity, from persecuting it as a *superstitio* to accepting that it was a *religio*, the Church acclaimed Constantine as an agent of God. He returned the favor by a steady increase of privileges for Catholics, until the Empire became a Christian preserve. Once the connection between Church and State was forged, however, it provoked a series of unintended consequences that included the Reformation. That process saw the emergence of a Protestant empire at odds with Catholic claimants to the mantle of Constantine.

The lecture series begins on Friday, October 4, and continues on the
following Fridays: October 11, 18, 25, and November 1. All lectures in the series are sponsored by the Institute of Advanced Theology and take place at the Church of St. John the Evangelist at 1114 River Road, Barrytown, NY. Lunch is at noon consisting of soup, bread, dessert, coffee and tea at a cost of $6.00. The presentation begins at 12:30 p.m. followed by a question and answer period.

An Interactive Lecture-Demonstration
by Sitar Maestro
Sugato Nag


Pandit (or maestro) Sugato Nag is one of the finest contemporary artistes in the North Indian classical music tradition. A sitar virtuoso, his style presents a unique synthesis of the austere classicism of the Shahjahanpore Sarode Tradition in which he was trained and the intricate beauty of the more modern Imdadkhani Style. His lecture-demonstration will focus on introducing the audience to Hindustani or North Indian classical music, especially with respect to its implementation on the sitar.


All are welcome.

"Sex, Religion, and Secular Cunning"


Mayanthi Fernando
University of California & Wesleyan University

How does the public/private distinction so central to secular-liberal democracy inflect the secular state's regulation of sex and religion? Focusing on contemporary France, this talk analyzes how political and legal practices aimed at securing secularity by rendering both sex and religion private paradoxically compel Muslim women to reveal in public the innermost details of their sexual and religious lives. That dual incitement to hide and to exhibit, and the grim consequences of exhibiting that which must be hidden, constitute "the cunning of secular power." 

Mayanthi Fernando is Assistant Professor Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She is currently a visiting professor of Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Wesleyan University for Spring 2013. Her first book is Asymmetries of the Republic: Islam, Secularism, and the Future of France, forthcoming from Duke University Press.

Divine and Popular Sovereignty in Islamic Political Thought after the Arab Spring


Andrew March
Associate Professor of Political Science, Yale University

Since the 2011 revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt, political life in those countries has been dominated by so-called "moderate Islamist" parties. These parties proclaim the acceptance of constitutional democracy and political power-sharing, while at the same time endorsing shari'a law as the ultimate source of legitimate power in a Muslim country. This talk approaches the paradox of Islamic democracy through the lens of the concept of sovereignty in contemporary Islamic political theology. What does it mean to hold that both God and the people can be said to be "sovereign" and what unresolved paradoxes remain at the level of theory?
