The Study Turkiye Program is a curriculum development workshop for university and community college faculty.
The program consists of three components: an annual full-day workshop in February, a 9 day trip to Turkey in June, and follow-up presentations in November of the same year.
The February workshop is open to all who are interested and will provide more information about the application process for the Turkey trip. The combination of workshop learning, international travel, and follow-up presentations arms faculty with the tools to develop an engaging curriculum that deals with Turkey-related issues, such as Turkey’s political position in European and global contexts, women’s issues, Islam and religion in Turkey, economic affairs, arts, and architecture.
The 2011 workshop presentations were made by experts from Loyola University, University of Chicago, Princeton University, Elmhurst College, Chicago Theological Union, and others. The following presentations are available to watch online.
