April 25, 18:00-19:30- Politicization of Television in Turkey: Reinvetning the Past, Construction the present

Date: 25. April 2017, 18:00-19:30 Uhr
Venue: Humboldt University of Berlin, Senate Hall in the Main Building, Unter den Linden 6, 10117 Berlin

In recent years Turkish television dramas have achieved a tremendous success with the viewers in Turkey and beyond, and at the same time have become increasingly politicized.

This panel focuses on questions regarding the relation between politics and Turkish TV series. What is the role of TV series in the reinvention of tradition for a ‘New Turkey’? What can we learn about today’s Turkey by looking at Turkish television? And how has the government been using TV dramas in constructing a new 'national' identity? How is the Ottoman past represented in TV dramas for political purposes in Turkey today?

The panelists will offer insights into their researches on history and culture of modern Turkey, the politicization of Turkish TV dramas and the relation between populism and popular culture.

The panel will be conducted in German and Turkish with simultaneous translation. There will be a reception afterwards.

Januar - Podiumsdiskussion: Revitalising Turkey-EU Relations in a Regional and Global Turmoil

In the turbulent global and European climate, it is timely to contextualize the debate on Turkey and the long-lasting Turkey-EU relationship in terms of global trends and the present debate on the future of Europe. The aim of this encounter is to focus on the possibility of the revitalization of the EU-Turkey-Germany relationship in changing global, European, and neighbourhood contexts. Germany has always been one of the key drivers of the process of European Integration and the EU-Turkey relationship. By inviting speakers from Turkey and Germany, we would like to contribute to this debate and encounter.

Dezember - Podiumsdiskussion: Gender and Politics in Turkey

Since the Justice and Development Party (AKP) has come to power in 2002, Turkey went through a fundamental political transformation. This panel will bring together scholars who apply gender approaches to examine change in public policies under the AKP government.

Our speakers will elaborate on their research and shed light on the nature of the gender regime in Turkey. What are its inherent strategies to define gender roles and regulate bodies? What is the relationship between political masculinities and political power? How do government policies affect gender relations in Turkish society and vice-versa?

November - Podiumsdiskussion: Turkish Cities in Flux - Urban space, Migration, and Right to the city

In Turkey, urban transformation processes have been taking place for decades. Already since the middle of the 20th century, state and society have been challenged by major domestic migratory movements. Attempts to govern the rapid mass urbanization have led to large-scale construction projects under the rule of the AKP. Yet, many Turkish citizens still live in precarious living conditions. The immigration of three million Syrian refugees has further increased already existing social and political tensions concerning urban space and the right to the city.

Our speakers will discuss the developments in Turkish cities: How do current urban transformation processes affect the way people live together? How are identities shaped and challenged though diversification and segregation in the city? Is the right to the city divisible? How are political and economic interests balanced in the field of urban planning? What influence do migratory and refugee movements have on urban space in Turkey?

Juni - Podiumsdiskussion: Bildung und Bildungspolitik in der Türkei

Das türkische Schulsystem hat in den letzten Jahren weitreichende Veränderungen erfahren, deren Auswirkungen umstritten sind. 2012 wurde die Schulpflicht von acht auf 12 Jahre erhöht. KritikerInnen argumentieren jedoch, dass durch die neuen Regelungen in der Praxis ein Schulabbruch erleichtert wurde. Auch die Umwandlung vieler Schulen in Imam-Hatip-Schulen, deren Lehrplan Religion einen höheren Stellenwert beimisst, wird unterschiedlich bewertet. Die Integration hunderttausender Kinder von Geflüchteten in das staatliche Schulsystem stellt zudem eine enorme Herausforderung für Politik und Gesellschaft dar.

Mai - Podiumsdiskussion: Die politische Ökonomie der Türkei: Ein- und Ausblicke

Noch vor wenigen Jahren war die Türkei eine der am schnellsten wachsenden Ökonomien und attraktiv für ausländische Investoren. Von 2003 bis 2010 hat sich das Pro-Kopf-Einkommen mehr als verdoppelt und der Lebensstandard vieler TürkInnen verbesserte sich. Doch die wirtschaftlichen Probleme nehmen zu. Im Jahr 2016 stieg die Arbeitslosenquote von 10,8% auf 12,7% und die türkische Lira hat deutlich an Wert verloren.

Juni - Podiumsdiskussion: A new AKP? - The future of the Justice and Development Party after the parliamentary elections | Network Turkey - GeT MA Jour Fixe

The parliamentary elections on June 7 will not only be decisive for the future of Turkey but also for the future of the AKP. Against this background, the panelists will discuss the impact of the outcome of the parliamentary elections and will attempt to give answers to the following questions: Which movements and factions exist within the AKP? How will the election results affect their power relations? Which actors will take key positions within the party and political institutions and who will be marginalized? What future role will the incumbent Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu play?

März - Podiumsdiskussion: The Kurdish Conflict from a European Perspective | Network Turkey - GeT MA Jour Fixe

At the end of February 2015, PKK Leader Abdullah Öcalan declared that he expects his followers to lay down arms, once the conditions for a settlement are met. For many observers, this was a puzzling step. The Kurdish conflict had just escalated. Tensions had hardened between the Turkish security forces and Kurdish, Turkish and Islamist groups in Turkey as a result of the Syrian and Iraqi wars and the fight for Kobane. Negotiations with the PKK seemed to be at the verge of collapse.

Februar - Podiumsdiskussion: "Sexual Identities and the Conservative Turn in Turkey"| Network Turkey - GeT MA Jour Fixe

On February 4, 2015 this year's first Network Turkey - GeTMA Jour Fixe took place.

In the last decade of AKP rule, Turkey’s society has undergone processes of deep societal transformation. Concomitantly, sexual identities have shifted, transformed and are being re-negotiated. Gender and sexuality has been at the centre of this re-negotiation. While gender relations are re-articulated in the context of AKP conservatism, sexual identities and homosexuality as an alternative form of masculinity have taken on an increasingly polarising meaning.
