Semester Herbstsemester 2020
Angebotsmuster einmalig
Dozierende Maurus Reinkowski (maurus.reinkowski@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt Iran and Turkey show some remarkable similarities in their reform policy in the twenthieth century. Both countries were subordinated in the 1920s and 1930s by their respective rulers, Shah Reza Pahlavi (1878-1944) and Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (1881-1938), to a systematic policy of authoritarian reform policy that aimed to "modernize" and "secularize" their societies. We will discuss, after a set of introductory units into the historical background, the ambivalent outcomes of this venture.
Lernziele Students will acquire a thorough understanding of the massive reform processes in both Iran and Turkey in the 1920s and 1930s, will be able to critically reflect on the concept of authoritarian modernization and to understand the effects of this policy up to the present in both countries.
Literatur Introductory works are:
Atabaki, Touraj / Zürcher, Erik Jan (edd.): Men of Order: Authoritarian Modernization under Atatürk and Reza Shah. London et al.: Tauris 2004.
Vaner, Semih (ed): Modernisation autoritaire en Turquie et en Iran. Paris: Harmattan 1991.
Bemerkungen The class is taught as a EUCOR seminar in cooperation with Tim Epkenhans (Iranian and Islamic Studies, University of Freiburg ) and Erdal Kaynar (Dept. of History, University of Strasbourg). As we will meet on three Fridays (in Basel, Freiburg and Strasbourg respectively) for the whole day students will have to be able to be present at each of the three days. We will announce the schedule and syllabus in late summer.
As we expect an equivalent number of students joining us from Basel, Freiburg and Strasbourg, the maximal number of students from Basel is limited to eight participants. Students of the M.A. programm (Masterstudienfach) Near & Middle Eastern Studies have priority (under the condition that they register until September, 13).
