Nizami Gəncəvi Beynəlxalq Mərkəzi
Nizami Ganjavi International Center – Baku, Azerbaijan
Identity politics is leading to violence in many parts of the world, but actually a self-assured sense of one’s identity, one’s cultural heritage and its continuity is a great basis for being open to the other and to enjoy the fruits of diversity and of cosmopolitanism. It is this basis of memory and renewal that makes cultures lively and productive. Nizami whose greatest contributions transcend the local to the global cultural scene must have cultural studies as a part of the intellectual agenda of a center dedicated to his legacy.
