Call for Papers: Berlin – Istanbul Lecture Series: Urban Space and Refugees

The Berlin-Istanbul Lecture Series particularly aims to explore the impact of the so-called refugee crisis on Berlin and Istanbul in a comparative perspective, keeping in mind the complex set of linkages between these two metropoles. The linkages of the two cities go back to the late nineteenth century in the fields of education, business, engineering, technology, architecture, urban planning and culture. The topics that are related to the focus of the lecture series include (but are not limited to) discrimination, housing, education, gender, health, food, political participation, solidarity, civil society, informality, mobility and temporality.

To investigate these topics with prominent scholars, we would like to invite graduate students and postdoctoral scholars of anthropology, architecture, cultural studies, geography, history, international relations, law, philosophy, political science, sociology and urban studies. The lecture series will take place on the 27th and 28th of October in Istanbul and 24th and 25th of November in Berlin, 2016. The lecture series in each city is organized as a two-day workshop (open to the public) by the BAU International Berlin and Center for Metropolitan Studies at the Technical University of Berlin. Funds will be available for the accommodation and travel costs of the participating graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in both cities.
