Call for Proposals

November 26, 2020

Columbia University’s Global Center in Istanbul is initiating a series of webinar workshops to highlight the research of emerging scholars (advanced PhD students and recent post-doctoral scholars).

Coordinated by Professor Zeynep Çelik, the sessions will concentrate mostly, but not exclusively, on the late Ottoman-early Turkish Republican period. Each meeting will have a focused topic. There will be three presentations (15 minutes each), followed by comments by a discussant. The resulting papers will be published in a special section of the Journal of Ottoman and Turkish Studies. Starting in mid-January 2021, the series will continue with about two webinars/month.

To this end, we are now inviting proposals that would pertain to the following overarching topics:

  • Politics of Archaeology
  • Immigration
  • Wars and Their Impacts
  • Urban Spaces
  • Urban Infrastructure
  • Regional Infrastructure
  • Urban Institutions
  • Visual Culture
  • Literature and History
  • Intellectual History
  • Environmental History
  • Life at Home
  • Labor History
  • Medical History
  • Ethnicity and Identity Politics
  • Law and History

Please download and fill out the form and send it to istanbul.cgc@columbia.edu in an attachment. 

Deadline: 20 December 2020
