Online Lecture Series on Contemporary Turkey: Anatomy of a Political Regime

Date: starting on May 13, every Wednesday, 5 p.m.

About the lecture series:
In the last two decades, Turkey has gone through major political, social and economic changes with critical repercussions in every sphere of life. Now counted among the cases of autocratic regimes, Turkey is far from being able to find democratic solutions to its long-rooted problems. With this lecture series, we aim to discuss different dimensions of these changes by focusing on constitution and law, the nature and form of the political regime, the relation between politics and religion, state and violence, media and politics as well as pandemic and the production of differences and inequalities. The series featuring eminent scholars will give us a comprehensive analysis of contemporary Turkey.

Confirmed lecturers: Esra Arsan, Fatma Müge Göçek, Ceren Lord, Aslı Odman, Murat Sevinç, Serdar Tekin, Nilgün Toker, Halil İbrahim Yenigün
