Journal: New Perspectives on Turkey

A leading Journal in Turkish Studies is being published in partnership with the LSE Chair


The leading international social science journal on Turkey, New Perspectives on Turkey, has been published in partnership with the LSE Chair in Contemporary Turkish Studies between 2010 and 2014. The editorial office of the journal remains in Istanbul but some joint events including conferences have been organized in Istanbul and London. The biannual lectures organized jointly by the Chair and SOAS are already being published in the journal.

This new partnership is made possible thanks to the generous financial support of Turkish Economy Bank (TEB) (Türkiye Ekonomi Bankası) between 2010 and 2014.

The Chair is planning to organize three conferences focusing on economic, political and social aspects of Turkey jointly with New Perspectives on Turkey through the generous support of Turkish Economy Bank (TEB) (Türkiye Ekonomi Bankası). The first conference has already been organized on 22 October 2010 in Istanbul, Boğaziçi University under the title of "Urban Classes and Politics in the Neoliberal Era: Turkey in Comparison", and it has focused on the rise of new industrial centres in Anatolia from both economic and socio-political aspects. The next conference has been organized jointly in 2011 at LSE, and focused on the Turkish economy and politics, an overview of Turkey's thirty years experience with globalization. We gratefully acknowledge the support of TEB for funding these conferences between 2010 and 2013 as well as publication of New Perspectives on Turkey in partnership with LSE Chair in Contemporary Turkish Studies between 2010 and 2014.

The aim of the journal is to provide a medium and an intellectual platform for debates and new scholarly ideas relating to the history, politics, society, economy and culture of Turkey and the Ottoman Empire. In addition to research directly concerned with Turkey and the Ottoman Empire, comparative perspectives and theoretical contributions relevant to such research are also actively solicited. The variety of material in the past issues ranging from Ottoman history to contemporary politics, from general theoretical concerns to interventions in specific debates - reflects the diversity of the journal's area of interests.
