講演："Between neo-Ottomanism and neo-liberalism: The Politics of Imagining Istanbul"
The piece frames a forthcoming edited volume entitled Istanbul: Living with Difference in a Global City (Rutgers UP, 2017). Asking what Istanbul can teach us about living in diversity, it turns to an age-old, cutting-edge city located at the intersection of trade networks connecting Europe, Asia, and Africa. Istanbul is western and eastern, northern and southern, religious and secular. Heir of ancient empires, Istanbul is the premier city of a proud nation-state, even as it becomes a global city of multinational corporations, NGOs, and capital flows.
The chapter explores two visions of Istanbul which vie for ownership of the city's story in the early 21st century. Both display nostalgia for the Ottoman past: a pro-religious narrative which celebrates the Ottoman-Islamic glory days of the early modern era, and a pro-secular story invoking the city's synthesis of Westernism and Ottoman multiculturalism during the Belle Epoque. Both are advocated by the city's capitalists and intelligentsia, and offer ethical frameworks for how to live with diversity. Both, however, have blind spots, omitting the aspirations of others who share the city's spaces. With the pro-religious narrative increasingly dominant, what will happen, the chapter asks, to those it excludes?
