Istanbul Research Institute and Pera Museum organize Istanbul Unbound: Environmental Approaches to the City, an international conference that seeks to offer new insights on the complex layers of Istanbul’s urban landscape, to be held in April 8-11, 2021, at the Pera Museum. It brings together innovative studies in the field of environmental history, political ecology, and critical art studies that utilize transdisciplinary methods and transcend predetermined scales and clearly delineated boundaries between the histories and stories of humans, nonhumans, and the built environment. Istanbul Unbound is organized in collaboration with Heinrich Böll Stiftung-Turkey, and through partnerships with birbuçukIstanbuLab, and Occupy Climate Change! It is also endorsed by European Society for Environmental History and Network for the Study of Environmental History of Turkey. A selection of the papers presented in the conference will be published in a special issue of YILLIK: Annual of Istanbul Studies.

The deadline to send paper abstracts is September 1, 2020. All abstracts, along with CV's, should be sent to mehmet.kentel@iae.org.tr.
