At a time when studies of Kurdish nation-building are developing, this book is the first to consider Kurdish oral traditions within their social context and explain their relevance for a large Kurdish community. It is the first western scholarly work to allow the Yezidis to describe themselves in their own words, and to interpret these descriptions. Many of the oral traditions in the book are previously unpublished, and may well die out in the next decade.

Sie missionieren nicht, sie kennen keine Hassprediger und sie legen Gott nicht entsprechend der eigenen Wünsche aus: Das Yezidentum ist eine der ältesten Religionen der Menschheit – und eine pazifistische Volksreligion. Die schicksalhafte Geschichte dieser Religionsgemeinschaft zeigt jedoch ein anderes Bild. Seit mehr als 1400 Jahren leiden Yeziden in ihrer Heimat unter systematischer Zwangsislamisierung, Massakern, Genoziden und Strafexpeditionen. Seit August 2014 werden sie vor den Augen der Weltöffentlichkeit von IS-Terroristen enthauptet, versklavt und vergewaltigt. Kulturelle Schätze und menschheitsgeschichtliches Erbe werden für immer zerstört. Angesichts der Tatsache, dass in Deutschland mittlerweile über 100.000 Yeziden leben, ist es erstaunlich, dass diese Glaubensgruppe und ihre diasporabedingten Probleme bislang nur unzureichend Eingang in die wissenschaftliche Forschung fanden. Es fehlen fast vollständig wissenschaftlich relevante Studien über ihre Geschichte, Religionssoziologie, Theologie, Tradition, religiöse Einstellung, Identitäts- und Integrationsprobleme und Perspektiven in Deutschland. Wer sind die Yeziden? Wie sieht ihre Zukunft in Deutschland aus? Mit ethnologisch-kulturellem Gesamtblick untersucht Halil Savucu, Gründungsmitglied des ZYD – Zentralrat der Yeziden in Deutschland, in seiner interdisziplinär ausgelegten Studie neben den Besonderheiten der yezidischen Gemeinschaft erstmals auch die "neue yezidische Elite" und leistet damit einen wertvollen Beitrag zur Versachlichung der Debatte über Yeziden in Deutschland.

Persian literature is the jewel in the crown of Persian culture. It has profoundly influenced the literatures of Ottoman Turkey, Muslim India and Turkic Central Asia. It has been a source of inspiration for Goethe, Emerson, Matthew Arnold and Jorge Luis Borges among others and praised by William Jones, Tagore, E. M. Forster and many more. Yet Persian literature has never received the attention it merits. Whereas Persian art and architecture, and more recently Iranian cinema, have been written about extensively and at different levels for a varied audience, Persian literature - the greatest achievement of the Iranian people, and one of the major literatures of the world - has largely remained the exclusive domain of specialists. And although in the past few years the poems of Rumi have attracted the kind of popular attention enjoyed by Omar Khayyam’s quatrains in the 19th century, Persian literature has never received the attention it truly deserves. A History of Persian Literature responds to this need and offers a new, comprehensive and detailed history of its subject. This multi-volume, authoritative survey reflects the stature and significance of Persian literature as the single most important accomplishment of the Iranian nation. Prominent scholars in the field bring a fresh critical approach to bear on this important topic and each volume includes representative samples of this literature. *** This companion volume deals with two of the most under-researched areas of study in the Modern Iranian field: the Persian oral and popular literature of Iran, Tajikistan and Persian-speaking Afghanistan on the one hand; and the written and oral literatures of the Kurds, Pashtuns, Baloch and Ossetians on the other. Drawing together original and ground-breaking contributions by leading experts, this volume will facilitate and stimulate further research and be an indispensable source for these literary traditions as well as an invaluable guide to the subject. In line with the latest academic thinking, the authors will reflect the modern scholarly emphasis away from an exclusive preoccupation with the ‘high’ literature of dominant cultures towards a more inclusive view of the concept of culture. This definitive study will offer the reader new insights into the complexity and variety of the literatures of the Iranian-speaking peoples.

In the first decade of the twenty-first century Turkey experienced an extraordinary set of transformations. In 2001, in the midst of financial difficulties, the country was under IMF stewardship, yet it has recently emerged as one of the fastest growing economies in the world. And on the international stage, Turkey has managed to enhance its position from being a backseat NATO member and outside candidate for EU membership to being an influential regional power, determining and developing its own individual foreign policy. Shane Brennan and Marc Herzog explore how these and other changes have shaped the way people in Turkey perceive themselves and how the country’s self-image shapes its actions. Through different approaches engaging with politics, economy, society, culture and history, they offer new perspectives on the transformation of national identity in this increasingly influential country in the Middle East.

Von der IS-Sklavin zur Trägerin des Friedensnobelpreises 2018: Das bewegende Schicksal der Jesidin Nadia Murad und ihr Kampf um Gerechtigkeit. Am 3. August 2014 endet das Leben, wie Nadia Murad es kannte. Truppen des IS überfallen ihr jesidisches Dorf Kocho im Norden Iraks. Sie töten die Älteren und verschleppen die Jüngeren. Kleine Jungen sollen als Soldaten ausgebildet werden. Die Mädchen werden verschleppt und als Sklavinnen verkauft. An diesem Tag verliert Nadia Murad 44 Angehörige. Für sie beginnt ein beispielloses Martyrium: Drei Monate ist sie in der Gewalt des IS, wird Opfer von Demütigung, Folter, Vergewaltigung. Nur mit Glück und unvorstellbarem Mut gelingt ihr die Flucht vor ihren Peinigern. Sie schafft es in ein Flüchtlingslager und kommt von dort aus nach Deutschland. Tausende andere junge Frauen befinden sich bis heute in der Gewalt des IS. Deren Stimme zu sein und sie zu befreien hat Nadia Murad sich zur Aufgabe gemacht. Heute kämpft sie dafür, dass das Verbrechen des IS als Völkermord anerkannt wird und die Verantwortlichen vor den Internationalen Strafgerichtshof gestellt werden. Die Vereinten Nationen ernannten Nadia Murad zur Sonderbotschafterin, darüber hinaus wurde sie mit dem Friedensnobelpreis und dem Vaclav-Havel-Preises für Menschenrecht ausgezeichnet. Nun erzählt sie ihre bewegende Geschichte.

Rediscovering Kurdistan’s Cultures and Identities: The Call of the Cricket offers insight into little-known aspects of the social and cultural activity and changes taking place in different parts of Kurdistan (Turkey, Iraq, Syria and Iran), linking different theoretical approaches within a postcolonial perspective. The first chapter presents the book’s approach to postcolonial theory and gives a brief introduction to the historical context of Kurdistan. The second, third and fourth chapters focus on the Kurdish context, examining ethical changes as revealed in Kurdish literary and cinema narratives, the socio-political role of the Kurdish cultural institutions and the practices of countering othering of Kurdish migrants living in Istanbul. The fifth chapter offers an analysis of the nineteenth-century missionary translations of the Bible into the Kurdish language. The sixth chapter examines the formation of Chaldo-Assyrian identity in the context of relations with the Kurds after the overthrow of the Ba’ath regime in 2003. The last chapter investigates the question of the Yezidis’ identity, based on Yezidi oral works and statements about their self-identification.
