Public Lecture by Prof. Nilüfer Göle, EHESS Paris

In her keynote lecture, Turkey‘s eminent sociologist Prof. Nilüfer Göle will revisit the promise and prospect of the Turkish Republic in light of its centennial in 2023. Over the course of hundred years, Turkey has been described as a bridge between Europe and Asia, or as a secular role model for Muslim countries but increasingly also as an example of authoritarian regress. What is the state of the Republic amidst massive domestic and external transformations, what are the key challenges that Turkey faces at its centennial and beyond? The lecture will take place 9 December 2022, 18:00 at Rheinsprung 9, Hörsaal 101.
