Turkish Circle Event

May 11, 2020 | 5:00PM

Dear Friends and Followers of Turkish Circle,

Today, Monday, May 11, 2020, at 5 pm, via Zoom, we will welcome Hülya Delihüseyinoğlu, a visiting predoctoral fellow in the Keyman Modern Turkish Studies Programme at Northwestern University, who will present "Armenian Schools in Turkey."   

Hülya Delihüseyinoğlu is currently a visiting pre-doctoral fellow in the Keyman Modern Turkish Studies Program at Northwestern University.   She is a PhD candidate in the Ataturk Institute for Modern Turkish History at Boğaziçi University. Her dissertation project investigates the extent to which Armenian schools play a role in the cultural resilience of the Armenian community in Turkey in spite of political and cultural targeting. 

While unravelling the liminality of the Armenian schools in Turkey as state-dominated spaces and spaces of cultural empowerment, she deals with the dialectical relationship between agency and structure, and discusses relations of power around the Armenian schools. Delihüseyinoğlu holds a BA degree in Political Science and International Relations from Boğaziçi University, and received her MA degree in Conflict Analysis and Resolution Programme from Sabancı University. She also has experience in civil society and has worked in several NGOs. 

We look forward to greeting you all via Zoom at 5 p.m., Monday, May 11, 2020!
