Application Due February 24 for Reframing Gendered Violence Project Istanbul Workshop

February 16, 2017

Columbia Global Centers | Istanbul invites senior undergraduate and graduate students to an interactive workshop series to be held as part of the “Reframing Gendered Violence,” a two­ year initiative at the Center for the Study of Social Difference (CSSD) at Columbia University.

The workshop series aims to explore questions of gender-based violence, sexual violence, violence against LGBT people in new directions, deepening the ways in which we engage with the manifestations and causes of such violence in local and global contexts. Participants are expected to watch video recordings of a series of panels, which took place in New York with distinguished scholars from Columbia and other universities in the field; and contribute to the debate by reflecting on their own research and academic interests. The workshops not only aim to bring together academics and students who work on themes related to gender based violence in Turkey and in the MENA region, but also create dialogue and facilitate exchange of knowledge at the global level.

Columbia Global Centers | Istanbul will held three workshops, which will be led by renowned academics in the field such as Prof. Ayse Gül Altınay, Prof. Fatmagül Berktay, Assoc. Prof. Zeynep Gambetti and Dr. Feyza Akınerdem. Academics who are directly affiliated with the Reframing Gendered Violence Project at Columbia will be attending the workshops via teleconference. The first workshop will be led by Susanna Elizabeth Ferguson (Columbia University) and Tugçe Ellialtı (University of Pennsylvania).
