Hrant Dink Memorial Workshop 2009: Gender, Ethnicity and the Nation-State


Hrant Dink Memorial Workshop 2009

Gender, Ethnicity and the Nation-State: Anatolia and Its Neighboring Regions

May 21-24, 2009, Istanbul

Drawing on Hrant Dink’s legacy of highlighting existing human connections and imagining new ones across physical and imagined borders, Hrant Dink Memorial Workshops seek to initiate and encourage interdisciplinary academic dialogue among scholars working on Anatolia and its neighboring regions.
Hrant Dink Memorial Workshop 2009 will bring together more than 60 academics, activists and artists to discuss the ways in which constructions and transformations of gender and ethnicity in and beyond nation-states have shaped Anatolia and its neighboring regions in the 20th century.

There will be simultaneous translation between English and Turkish throughout the workshop. Please share this information with anyone who might be interested. For more information on the workshop and for the registration form (which must be filled out by all guests), click on the following link:
