YUSUF AL-NABHANI AND CONSERVATIVE MODERNITY IN THE LATE OTTOMAN PERIOD
This panel considers the life and thought of an influential conservative thinker, Yusuf al-Nabhani (d. 1849-1932). Born in Palestine, al-Nabhani was a Sunni scholar and sufi who promoted devotion to the Prophet Muhammad. A passionate supporter of the Ottoman caliphate, a scholar and judge, al-Nabhani was a fierce opponent of the reformist trends that sought to shape the world that he inhabited. The panel seeks to acknowledge the role that visions of ‘conservative modernity’ such as al-Nabhani’s played in the intellectual and religious life of late Ottoman Palestine and Syria, and the impact that they had in regions far beyond, from Anatolia and Arabia to East and North Africa.
