This workshop brings together graduate students (PhD students, MA students, and BA students in the process of graduation) who are based in German-speaking countries and are involved in research on contemporary Turkey and its diasporas. The objective of the workshop is to encourage interdisciplinary exchange and debate among these young scholars and to help further establish Turkey-related research in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
