"Alevis, as religious and cultural communities, have been frequently included in the discussions about internal, international, transnational, and even return migration in recent years. Particularly, transnational Alevi communities in Europe in the past three decades witnessed unprecedent developments about their cultural and political lives. While in Turkey discussions related to their political, cultural, and religious belongings continued, Alevis today are recognized as autonomous groups in several European states. We take transnationalism not as a unilinear transformation of concepts, practices, and actors from one place to another but as a web of complex negotiations and diverse configurations in a greater space and welcome papers with ethnographic perspectives that would treat social, cultural, and political issues such as integration, identity, diaspora, social and religious movements, religious diversities in different cases in Europe as well as in Turkey. We do also expect contributions to assess above issues critically. We will mostly tackle with the changing landscapes and institutions of Alevism in transnational space such as religious and organizational leadership; gender roles within and outside Alevi associations; socio-spatial aspects of Alevi belief practices; music, ritual, poetry, festival, and heritage; cultural brokerage in Alevism. These themes are not meant to be exhaustive and participants can contribute to the panel through interdisciplinary lenses."
