Reexamining Turkish German Archive(s)
We are pleased to announce that the application for the 2020 Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program is now open! We welcome your students to apply now to learn a critical foreign language next summer on a fully-funded study abroad program.
Over the past months, Turkish academics and scholars have experienced considerable intimidation and harassment by Turkish authorities. University teachers and researchers have been forced out of their jobs, students have lost their supervisors or are no longer allowed to continue studying. In many cases, the only reason for the maltreatment was that they had signed a peace petition that called on the Turkish government to stop the use of violence against civilians in Southeast Turkey and to reopen peace talks.
I am in possession of a memoir on life in modern Turkey, and I would like to translate the memoir into English for publication. The memoir is 190 pages and it focuses on life in modern Turkey for a special ethnic group. The translation will be in included in a book proposal for several university presses. Given the uniqueness of the author and memoir, I am waiting to secure the services of a translator under contract before discussing the text openly.
