Fighting under the same banner: Memories from the Ottoman theater of the Great War

26 March 2021 | Authors: Richard Wittmann & Yaşar Tolga Cora

What did it mean to individuals of different ethnic and religious backgrounds to participate in World War I under the Ottoman crescent and star banner? Focusing on a wide array of autobiographical sources including memoirs, letters, diaries, and non-textual forms of life narrative left by the multi-ethnic and multilingual Ottoman soldiers and civilians who aided the war effort, we organized the conference “Fighting Under the Same Banner: Memories from the Ottoman Theater of the Great War” (Istanbul, September 6-8, 2019).

Between Tradition and Innovation: The Young Generation of Iranian Composers in the Digital Era

5 March 2021 | Author and producer of podcast: Dr. des. Kamyar Nematollahy

Iranian classical music is heir to an ancient tradition that was historically connected to the court and other institutions of power. This music was once based on the Maghām system, but as a result of formal changes and transmutations, is currently based on Dastgāh and thus is largely called Dastgāhi music.

Blue mohawk and the whirling dervish: a glimpse into contemporary Mevlevi soundscapes

25 September 2020 | Author: Nevin Şahin

Authenticity in the performance of Mevlevi whirling rituals has long been discussed and for a few decades, a new tradition of commemorating Mevlana Rumi (1207-73) has been established. With the foundation of state ensembles solely for performing the ritual on stage, the construction of cultural centers that comprise circular “whirling halls” and the live broadcast of the “Wedding Night (Şeb-i Arûs)” ceremony in Konya on state television, this new soundscape has gained a claim of authenticity.
