Thursday 23rd September 2021 | 17:00-18:30 (London UTC+1) | 19:00-20:30 (Ankara UTC+3) | Online

Funda Hülagü asks how the supposedly liberalizing project of police reform in Turkey has become central to Justice and Development Party’s increasingly authoritarian governance. Engaging state theory and a gender analytical perspective, Hülagü will trace the implementation of security sector reform in Turkey, showing how various agents, including liberal policy-makers, Turkish police and the feminist movement in Turkey have contributed to and resisted growing police powers.

ONLINE BOOK LAUNCH: Architectures of Emergency: Heritage, Displacement and Catastrophe

ONLINE BOOK LAUNCH: Architectures of Emergency: Heritage, Displacement and Catastrophe

Online | The seminar will be held via Zoom

14 October 2021 17:00 to 18:30

A BIAA-I.B.Tauris Series Joint Online Book Launch with Eray Çaylı (London School of Economics and Political Science), Pınar Aykaç (Middle East Technical University) and Sevcan Ercan (Istanbul Medeniyet University).

Tuesday 14 October 2021 | 17:00-18:30 (London UTC+1) | 19:00-20:30 (Ankara UTC+3) | Online

Challenging existing political analyses of the state of emergency in Turkey, this volume argues that such states are not merely predetermined by policy and legislation but are produced, regulated, distributed and contested through the built environment in both embodied and symbolic ways. Contributors use empirical critical-spatial research carried out in Turkey over the past decade, exploring discourses and practices of heritage conservation, processes of displacement and imaginaries and measures associated with disasters. Contributing to the broader literature on the related concepts of exception, risk, crisis and uncertainty, the book discusses the ways in which these phenomena shape and are shaped by the built environment, and provides context-specific empirical substance to this discussion by focusing on contemporary Turkey. In so doing, it offers nuanced insight into the debate around emergency as well as into recent urban-architectural affairs in Turkey.
