Knowledge and Lives in Exile: An Entangled History of the Humanities and Social Sciences in Turkey, 1925–194

My research focuses on the (re-)structuring of the humanities and social sciences and the production of knowledge in the new republic of Turkey from 1920s to 40s through entanglements between Turkey, Germany, Switzerland and France. The research will contribute to the global intellectual history of the period, with a strong social history focus, superimposing trajectories of lives and knowledge on top of one another.
