Malek Sharif
“Swimming against the currents: On the unpublished memoirs of an Arab-Ottoman officer during WWI”

Summary :

In this talk Dr. Malek Sharif will introduce the memoirs and discuss their significance in view of other reminiscences dealing with the same period. Some themes in the memoirs will be analysed, like the author’s experience as a Boy Scout and later as a cadet in Istanbul as well as his experience as a young officer in the Ottoman army on the west Jordanian front. The self perception of the author as an educated Beiruti, an Arab and an Ottoman officer will be discussed.

Short Bio of Dr. Malek Sharif :

Malek Sharif holds a BA in History and a MA in Middle Eastern History from the American University of Beirut. In 2004, he received his PhD in Ottoman History from the Free University of Berlin, Institute of Turkic Studies. 2004-2005 he was affiliated to the German Orient Institute in Istanbul, as a post doctoral fellow of the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin. From 2005 until 2007 he was a fellow of the Fritz Thyssen Foundation residing in Istanbul where he conducted research on the parliamentary, municipal and medical history of the Ottoman Empire. From 2008 until 2014 he was visiting assistant professor and lecturer at the American University of Beirut. He is currently senior research associate at the Corpus Musicae Ottomanicae at the University of Münster.

He is the author of Imperial Norms and Local Realities: The Ottoman Municipal Laws and the Municipality of Beirut (1860-1908), 2014, and coeditor of The First Ottoman Experiment in Democracy, 2010.

“From Haridâs to ‘Alîdâs”
Abstract
The figure of the Imâm is central in shî’sme, particularly for the khojas ismailis where the Imâm is physically present in the person of Shâh Karîm al-Husaynî, Aga Khan IV. He is considered as the 49th Imâm descendant of the Prophet Muhammad from his daughter Fâtima and his cousin and son in law ‘Alî (d. 661). An emblematic and historical figure, the Imâm assumes a double heritage that of Abrahamic tradition vested in the interpretation of the Quran, and presented in the devotional texts of ginân and du’a as the 10th avatâr of Vishnu in the hindu tradition.
Through an analysis of two ginân and of some selected verses of Kalâm-i Maulâ which are examples of the devotional literature of the community we shall try to understand the construction of religious identity of the Khojas Shia Imâmî Ismailis in South East Asia.
