The Fourth International Congress of Turkology Turkic Peoples Through the Ages and Lands
The Department of Turkish Studies and Inner Asian Peoples of the Faculty of Oriental Studies at the University of Warsaw is organizing the Fourth International Congress of Turkology Turkic Peoples Through the Ages and Lands on 21-23rd of September 2016.
The main area of interest for the Fourth Congress will be contemporary studies and research on the history, culture and language of Turkey and Turkish (Turkic) peoples, as well as lands they inhabit now and in the past. Although Turkic studies are generally linked with research on the language and literature, scholars working in this field carry out research in many specialties in addition to the achievements of many other disciplines. Therefore, Turkic studies, as many other branches of humanities and Oriental studies, can be defined as interdisciplinary field of studies.
Following the previous Congresses, this year we would like to continue the discussion on the development of Turkic studies and their methods, theoretical basis for research, promotion of research results, as well as teaching Turkic languages and cultures of Turkic peoples. During the Congress, we hope to create an opportunity for participating Turkologists to share their experiences, discuss studies-related problems and issues indirectly related to them that they encounter at work, as well as perspectives of future research.
Please find below the main topic areas of the 2016 Congress:
- History and politics
- Language studies
- Traditional culture and contemporary life style
- Beliefs and religious systems
- Social problems
- Fine arts
- Research methodology and theoretical frames within Turkic studies
- Organization and financial support for Turkic studies within international projects.
