INAF 588 - Modern Turkey
This course brings historical and other scholarly perspectives to bear on the politics and society of Modern Turkey from the late Ottoman period to the present.  We examine the seismic impact of the First World War and the establishment of the Turkish Republic in 1923; the contested, often violent, processes of nation-building and nationalism; the legacy of Turkey’s first president, Ataturk ( “Father of the Turks”); and Turkey’s emergence as a regional power and the politics of the so-called neo-Ottomanism today.
