LECTURE: 20th-century Turkish literature before and after Orhan Pamuk

London | The British Academy

18 September 2013 18:30 to 20:30

A BIAA Lecture by Dr. Maureen Freely

Until recently, most Anglophone readers knew of only one Turkish writer, Orhan Pamuk. Last year, they added a second name – Elif Şafak. But suddenly every publisher in London wants its own Turkish novelist. There is also an interest in twentieth century classics. How did this happen? What will happen next? Maureen Freely will compare and contrast the official story with her own eyewitness account, as well as offering a list of exciting new (and old) names to watch.

LECTURE: Hattusha - the Capital City of the Hittites.

Ankara | The Turco British Association

21 February 2013 19:00 to 19:00

A BIAA Lecture by Dr Andreas Schachner 

Hattusha-Bogazköy, a typical town of the central Anatolian Bronze Age, was founded around 2000 BC, in succession to several short-lived settlements of the fifth and fourth millennia BC. Originally a local centre, Hattusha developed into the capital city of the Hittite state after ca. 1650 BC. The lecture aims to reconstruct this development, which transformed this regional centre into one of the largest and most complex cities of its time, characterized by several unique buildings and structures demonstrating the power and might of Hittite civilization.
