Citizenship after Orientalism

Professor Engin Isin (Open University)

This lecture reflects on the process and findings of a research programme that began in 2002 in Canada as a project associated with Canada Research Chair (CRC) grant and ended in the UK with a European Research Council (ERC) Advanced grant in 2014. It outlines the original premises of the research, various research projects undertaken on Islamic trust, discusses difficulties of undertaking transdisciplinary research, and the possible contributions of this research programme to understanding political subjectivity called citizenship.
