Istanbul Center is pleased to announce that Dr. Scott Alexander of Catholic Theological Union will join us in our monthly Midtown Luncheon Series in February 2013. Dr. Alexander will give a talk entitled “Islamic Renewal, the Gülen Movement, and Turkish Democracy.” The lecture will take place at Istanbul’s Midtown Headquarters at Two Midtown Plaza, Suite 1010, on Friday, February 22, at 12:00. The cost to attend is $10 for those who register in advance at istanbulcenter.org, or $15 at the door. Lunch will follow.
Dr. Alexander is currently Associate Professor of Islam at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, where he is also Director of the school’s Catholic-Muslim Studies Program.
In March of 2007, Dr. Alexander was one of five U.S. scholars to be awarded an Association of Theological Schools Lilly Faculty Fellowship in support of his research and writing. His most recent book project is entitled The Race to Goodness: an End to Triumphalism in Christian-Muslim Relations which addresses the inherent contradiction between religious claims to universal truth and the religiously motivated desire to impose this truth on others as a means of political and cultural domination.
