Symposium on the occasion of Kerem Öktem’s farewell as Professor of Southeast European Studies and Modern Turkey at the University of Graz.
Inspired by the multi-directional trajectories and by the potentiality of Turkish studies as a liberating space of scholarly interac-tion, we will discuss the current state of the field and its possible futures. The speakers are leading scholars and young academics working on Turkey, who have collaborated with Kerem Öktem and contributed to the development of Turkish Studies at Graz. With four thematic conversations and a reflection panel, the Symposium will pay homage to Kerem Öktem and his colleagues’ work at the Centre for Southeast European Studies between 2014 and 2019.
