Identity and Culture
14-17 June 2005
Boğaziçi University, Istanbul (Turkey)
co-organized by the Group for Cultural Studies in Turkey and the Department of Western Languages and Literatures of Bogazici University
The Group for Cultural studies in Turkey and Boğaziçi University invite proposals for a cultural studies conference entitled Identity and Culture they are co-organizing on 14-17 June 2005 in Istanbul (Turkey). Focusing on issues of identity in its multiple relationships with various facets of culture, the interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary conference aims to interrogate established notions of identity both in Turkey and outside of Turkey.
We welcome proposals for papers that break new ground in generating theory, or constitute innovative critical or comparative work that would lead to theoretical formulations and methodology. The conference intends to examine issues of identity in Turkey, among the peoples in the lands of the former Ottoman empire, among the Euro-Turks (and Turkish- Americans, Australasian Turks, etc.), among the Turcophone peoples in countries and regions in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union (in Central Asia, the Caucasus, and the Russian Federation) and those Turcophone minorities in such countries as Iran and China.
The working language of the conference is Turkish. Abstracts of 100-200 words or complete papers, containing five key words, should be sent along a brief curriculum vita. Panel proposals with three to four papers should include, besides the panel proposal and five key words, abstracts of the papers in the panel, and brief curriculum vitae of the chair, presenters, and discussant(s) if any. Send no later than 31 October 2004 by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org; by fax to +90 212 287 2470 (Attn.: Cultural Studies Conference); or by snail mail to Cultural Studies Conference, Department of Western Languages and Literatures, Faculty of Science and Letters, Boğaziçi University, PK. 2, Bebek, İstanbul (Turkey).
