“The Gülen Movement: Paradigms, Projects, and Aspirations” is proposed as a conference designed to encourage scholarly research into the questions articulated above, as well as many more.

It is to be interdisciplinary in nature so that the work of the conference can begin to draw important connections between analyses of the movement from the perspectives of disciplines such as: theology, religious studies, cultural studies, sociology, anthropology, urban studies, literature, history, philosophy, law, psychology, economics, political science, and international relations, as well as many others.
