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?
