Contemporary Turkish Studies
The Chair in Contemporary Turkish Studies focuses on culture, religion, politics, and memory in Turkey and among Turkey's diasporic populations. Its mission is to promote a deeper understanding of Turkey with emphasis on its diversity and a focus on its connections to wider world. As the only Chair of its kind located at a European Institute, its specific focus is the dynamic relationship of Turkey with Europe.
The Chair provides academic leadership in the study of Turkey with respect to interdisciplinary and critical research, teaching and related public activities. It organizes seminars, conferences, supports doctoral studies on contemporary Turkey.
