Futures Interrupted: social pluralism and political projects beyond coloniality and the nation-state
The Near- and Middle Eastern Studies are glad to present you the new research project “Futures Interrupted: social pluralism and political projects beyond coloniality and the nation-state” by SNSF Consolidator grantee Prof. Dr. Falestin Naïli.
Her project aims to renew our perspective on the period between the end of the Ottoman Empire and the beginning of the age of nations in the Arab world by paying particular attention to local actors. The focus on unrealized social and political projects promoted by local actors allows us a look at the Arab world beyond the colonial framework and beyond the prevailing nation-state model. It also offers a view of alternative articulations of belonging and political community.
