Professor John L. Esposito of Georgetown University delivers the keynote speech with the topic "Engaging modernity in the West: Gulen Movement" at inauguration of the international conference "The Gulen Movement: Paradigms, Projects, and Aspirations."

The international conference took place on November 11-13, 2010 at International House at University of Chicago. The conference was designed to encourage scholarly research into the questions regarding Gulen Movement. It was interdisciplinary in nature so that the work of the conference could 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.
