In 1878, over a million Ottoman Muslims became citizens of other European states. They had not moved. The borders did. This talk explores Muslims' varied responses to the shattering of the Ottoman world and the political reordering of Europe. It raises questions about the nature of citizenship and political belonging in modern Europe and the ways that Muslims became transformative agents in the development of European states and societies from the 1880s to the 1940s. The history of nation-building, legal negotiation, and the European project looks different when told from the perspective of Europe's Muslims. The talk concludes by asking us to reconsider some of our assumptions about what is European history and who is European.

Emily Greble is Associate Professor of History and German, Russian and East European Studies at Vanderbilt University. Her research interests include Islam in Europe, the transition from empire to nation-state, civil conflict, and local responses to socialism. She is the author of Muslims and the Making of Modern Europe (Oxford, 2021) and Sarajevo: Muslims, Christians, and Jews in Hitler's Europe (Cornell, 2011).

Speakers: Dr. Riyad A. Shahjahan is an Associate Professor of Higher, Adult and Life Long Education (HALE) at Michigan State University. Ms. Tasnim A. Ema is an undergraduate student at the Department of Anthropology at University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. Mr. Nisharggo Niloy completed his post-graduation from the Department of Anthropology at the University of Dhaka. 

Drawing on interviews and participant observations with 22 faculty in Dhaka, Bangladesh, we illuminate how academics experience, contest and manipulate their time(s) amid rapid socio-economic transformations of Dhaka (a mega-city). We aim to decenter the Global North knowledge production about temporality in higher education literature by introducing and applying a culturally sustaining concept of 'shomoyscapes'. While the Bengali word 'shomoy' literally means 'time', it goes beyond 'clock time', and also refers to memories, present moments, feelings, a particular duration, and/or signi􀃶er for a temporal engagement. We demonstrate the efficacy of shomoyscapes by illuminating how faculty in Bangladesh experience various temporal forces, such as: a) traffic, b) university politics, and c) the future of others. We conclude with implications about the complex temporal constraints at work within an urban Global South context and a rapidly growing HE system in South Asia.
