Our Researcher Selected to Participate in the Voices of Emerging Scholars Program

Deniz Gündoğan İbrişim has been selected to participate in the Voices of Emerging Scholars program hosted by Columbia Global Centers (Istanbul) and Columbia University (New York).

On 9 November 2022 there will be a webinar entitled "Public and Private Lives of Women”. In the webinar, a cross-disciplinary set of papers will cover themes ranging from diplomatic marriages to female labor and women in the margins of the city.

On November 9, 2022, Gündoğan İbrişim will be presenting her research on Suat Derviş’s literature. In her research, Gündoğan İbrişim focuses on the cultural and literary image of postimperial Istanbul through an analysis of Suat Derviş (b. 1905, İstanbul – d. 23 July 1972) - one of the leading female authors of Turkish literature. This research project examines Derviş’s significant body of work in relation to urban ruins and ruination. In particular, it investigates how Istanbul, on a global and local stage, exposes the complexities and ambiguities of a metropolitan area deeply connected to the imperial ruination and debris.

Starting as a Covid-19 project, the Voices of Emerging Scholars created a platform, which presented new research in Ottoman-Turkish studies to a wide network of scholars and students worldwide. The resulting papers of the previous year were published in The Journal of Ottoman and Turkish Studies.

This academic year, the webinars will be coordinated by Zeynep Çelik, Visiting Professor of Sakıp Sabancı Center for Turkish Studies at Columbia University, and A. Tunç Şen, Assistant Professor of History, and cover a broader chronological span from the early modern to the late Ottoman and Early Republican periods.
