Islam, Empire, and Energy: Azerbaijan and the Modern World

Students will take up residence at the crossroads of Europe and Asia – the meeting place of Christendom and Islam, and the nexus of the broader Turkic, Persianate, and Slavic civilizations – and examine the traditions of nomads and mountain-dwellers, the relationship between religion, identity and politics, and the nature of the split between Sunni and Shi’i Islam.

The Global Seminar in Azerbaijan for Summer 2020 has been cancelled due to the evolving global health emergency caused by the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

PIIRS adheres to the Princeton University policy, which currently prohibits university-sponsored travel to Azerbaijan. Please see this link for more information.

We extend our thanks to the students who have already applied to the program.
