Dr. Jeremy F. Walton (Research Group Leader • Forschungsgruppenleiter)

Vita

Jeremy F. Walton ist Kulturanthropologe, dessen Forschung an der Schnittstelle von Erinnerungsforschung, Stadtentwicklungsforschung und Neuem Materialismus angesiedelt ist. Er leitet die Max-Planck-Forschungsgruppe "Empires of Memory: The Cultural Politics of Historicity in Former Habsburg and Ottoman Cities" am Max-Planck-Institut zur Erforschung multireligiöser und multiethnischer Gesellschaften. Dr. Walton erhielt seinen Ph.D. in Anthropologie von der University of Chicago im Jahr 2009. Sein erstes Buch Muslim Civil Society and the Politics of Religious Freedom in Turkey (Oxford University Press, 2017) ist eine Ethnographie muslimischer NGOs, staatlicher Institutionen und des Säkularismus in der heutigen Türkei. Bevor er als Forschungsgruppenleiter ans MPI MMG wechselte, hatte er Forschungs- und Lehrstipendien am Center for Advanced Studies of Southeastern Europe an der Universität Rijeka, dem CETREN Transregional Research Network an der Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, dem Center for Contemporary Arab Studies der Georgetown University und dem Religious Studies Program der New York University inne. Er hat seine Forschungen in einer Vielzahl von wissenschaftlichen Zeitschriften veröffentlicht, darunter in American Ethnologist, Sociology of Islam, The Cambridge Journal of Anthropology, Die Welt des Islams und History and Anthropology. Er ist außerdem Mitherausgeber mehrerer Bände, darunter Anthropology and Global Counterinsurgency (University of Chicago Press, 2010) und Art and Politics in the Modern Period (University of Zagreb Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, 2019). Das von ihm ins Leben gerufene Forschungsprojekt „Empires of Memory" versteht sich als ein interdisziplinäres, überregionals Projekt über post-imperiales Gedächtnis in post-habsburgischen und post-osmanischen Reichen.
