The Office of the Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences is pleased to invite you to the final Dean’s Symposium for this term, which will take place on Tuesday, Apr. 25 in the Library Screening Room (Building 1L, Room 223) from 2:30pm to 4:00pm.
The symposium’s topic will be “Turkey and the Middle East.” The three speakers are:
-Ozlem Goner, Department of Sociology and Anthropology
-Halill Ege Ozen, Department of Political Science and Global Affairs
-Bilge Yesil, Department of Media Culture
This panel situates the case of Turkey within this landscape by exploring the early phases of democratization (2012-2015) and the rise of authoritarian politics and culture following the 2015 national elections. In this symposium, a sociologist sheds light on the false promises of democritization and the status of state-minority relations; a political scientist examines the 2015 elections and their aftermath; and a cultural critic looks at continuity and change in state-media relations.
There will be a short reception afterward.
