Making Sense of Turkey's Cold War
- Friday 26 March 2021
Turkey’s Cold War history has received only limited attention from scholars. Most studies focus on conventional questions of either diplomacy or governance, sidelining the history of cultural developments, social movements, and transnational dynamics. Addressing these gaps in the literature, this webinar will feature new and original research on how to make sense of Turkey’s “Cold War experience” during the 1950s–’80s.
This webinar is organized by Alp Yenen (Leiden University) and Jan-Markus Vömel (University of Konstanz).
Presentations by Nadav Solomonovich (University of Haifa), Hüseyin Çiçek (University of Vienna), Çimen Günay-Erkol (Özyeğin University), Sevil Çakır Kılınçoğlu (University of Göttingen), Zeynep Bursa-Millet (CETOBaC/EHESS Paris), Cangül Örnek (Maltepe University), and Eldad Ben Aharon (Leiden University).
This event is connected with Leiden University’s Turkish Studies, DFG Research Network on Contemporary History of Turkey, and Turkey Studies Network in the Low Countries.
