The Cultural Studies Association of Turkey and the Istanbul Office of the American Research Institute in Turkey are organizing a symposium that aims to examine the history, language, literature, and culture of the Turkish element in the United States of America. This includes coverage of immigrants of all ethnic backgrounds from the Ottoman Empire and their descendants, and all persons self-defined as Turks and their descendants. We welcome the participation of representatives from various academic disciplines who share a common interest in Turkish-American topics.
The symposium is a follow-up to the “Introduction to Turkish-American Studies” workshop organized in 2014 at Boğaziçi University.
The inaugural workshop on Turkish American Studies organized by the Cultural Studies Association of Turkey was held on June 6-7, 2014 in Bebek, İstanbul, Turkey at the premises of of the Boğaziçi University Alumni Association.. This workshop is one in a series of international Cultural Studies symposia that are organized by the association and have been contributing to cultural studies, bringing together researchers who work in respective areas.
