Charles Hirschkind: A Workshop on Ethics & Politics

Charles Hirschkind focuses on religious practice, media technologies, and emergent forms of political community in the urban Middle East and Europe. In The Ethical Soundscape: Cassette Sermons and Islamic Counterpublics (Columbia, 2006), he explores how a popular Islamic media form—the cassette sermon—has profoundly transformed the political geography of the Middle East over the last three decades.
