The Young Scholars on Turkey (YSOT) Program
Call for Papers
The Young Scholars on Turkey (YSOT) Program calls for individual paper proposals for its first annual conference to be held on April 15, 2011 at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
The YSOT Conference 2011 is co-sponsored by SETA Foundation at Washington D.C., Institute of Turkish Studies (ITS) at Georgetown University, and Ali Vural Ak Center for Global Islamic Studies at George Mason University.
The YSOT Program aims to facilitate dialogue and exchange of ideas between Washington based policy makers, scholars, and young researchers whose research is related to Turkey in various academic institutions and research centers. The program aims to contribute to diversity of voices and analytical perspectives on Turkey. For further information, visit www.setadc.org/ysot.
Individual paper proposals on policy-relevant issues on Turkey in disciplines such as history, political science, international relations, public policy, economics, sociology, and conflict resolution are welcome. While papers can be from a broad range of topics, we emphasize that the subject matter should have policy implications.
The YSOT Conference 2011 papers will be published in a separate volume. Insight Turkey, an academic quarterly journal published by SETA Foundation, will consider select papers for publication.
Please submit a 200 word abstract and a short bio as word attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 21, 2011. If selected, we will contact you by March 7, 2011. Limited funding may be available to cover airfare and accommodation for international participants. Please indicate in your application if you intend to travel for the conference.
