Full Title:
Under the Same Sky: The Politics of Religious Difference at Turkey’s Border with Syria

This lecture interrogates the category of religion as an anthropological object of study and an ascribed or claimed marker of minority difference. Drawing on the case of Arab Orthodox Christians and their relations with other communities near Turkey’s border with Syria, it calls for attention to the reproduction and reconfiguration of religious boundaries in the social fabric of everyday life rather than the bounded categorizations of religious identity.

Secil Dagtas is an assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Waterloo in Canada and a research fellow at the Collegium de Lyon in France. Her research focuses broadly on gender politics and the secular governance of religious difference in Turkey and at its Middle Eastern borderlands. Dr. Dagtas has published articles in International Journal of Middle East Studies, Feminist Studies, Anthropology of the Middle East, and Etnofoor along with a number of book chapters and commentaries
