The use of the word Oecumene

Launch podcast

Launch podcast

Engin Isin explores the meaning of the word Oecumene and how it relates to the content of the project. The meaning of this classical Greek word is somehow ambiguous which makes it all the more interesting and challenging for our project. Engin is also speaking about the timing of the project by asking the question ‘why Oecumene now?’ and relates the research agenda to current events in the Arab world.

This podcast consists of excerpts taken from Engin Isin’s presentation at the Oecumene launch event at the Open University in February 2011. You can watch more pictures of the launch event on Oecumene’s Facebook page.
