From Unionism to Kemalism: Social and Political Transformation of Turkey
BASEL, 27-28 October, 2017

Call for Applications for the 5th Annual MUBIT Doctoral Workshop in Late- and Post-Ottoman Studies in Basel: "From Unionism to Kemalism: Social and Political Transformation of Turkey" with Prof. Dr. Asim Karaömerlioglu (Bogazici University) and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ahmet Kuyas (Galatasaray University).

An international workshop organized by MUBIT Inter-University Doctoral Cooperation in Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies Basel/Zurich & Middle Eastern Studies, The Graduate School of Social Sciences (G3S), University of Basel, Switzerland.


This workshop intends to shed light on specific historiographical questions emerging from the interactions of political developments, demographic realities and social mobilization in Turkey from the Unionist through the Kemalist era (1908-1945). By examining such interactions, we aim to reassess and rethink some of the dominant viewpoints and paradigms relating to the general contours of Turkish history.
