Call for Papers: International Review of Turkish Studies
© Institute for Turkish Studies, 2011(/2013)
In the past decade Turkey has experienced significant economic, social, and political changes. These developments are reflected in the more ambitious role the country has taken in regional and international affairs, its emergence as a presence in the global economy, in the marked expansion of its economic middle-class and Anatolian bourgeois class, and in a noticeable falling away of enthusiasm towards the goal of EU membership. With a broad focus on new identity formations, the aim has to be to come to a more informed understanding of how domestic and international factors have shaped Turkey in the last centuries. The ‘International Review of Turkish Studies’ will bring together a diverse range of prominent voices from within and outside Turkey, each offering a critical analysis from the perspective of their own field of expertise. Through this inclusive approach, we hope to reach beyond our core academic audience and appeal to a range of broader ones.
The main aim of the academic journal ‘International Review of Turkish Studies’ is to expand and organize Turkey-related articles. This includes all the articles concerning:
• History of Turks, a people whose history as a distinct entity extends 3000 years. (History of the Republic of Turkey, history of the Ottoman Empire, history of Turks as it extends to Central Asia, is the "History of Turks");
The deadline for proposals is one month before the issue of International Review of Turkish Studies is to be published. IRTS is a quarterly journal that appears four times a year in March, June, September and December.
