John Curry (History) presented a working paper at the "Seeing Like a Sufi: Vision and Space in Sufism" workshop held at Ludwig-Maximilians Universitat in Munich, Germany. The paper addressed the topic of "Narratives of Miraculous Vision in the Eighteenth-Century Hagiographies of Unsi Hasan Efendi and Nasuhi Muhammad Efendi." The workshop brought together scholars working on the topic from all over Europe, the Middle East, and the United States over the course of three days as part of an European Union-funded project earlier this month. It is part of a broader consortium of European universities working on the topic of "Cultures of Vigilance."
