We have exciting year for Turkish Studies at UNC-CH this year. Eren Tasar joined the faculty of the Department of History (http://history.unc.edu/people/faculty/eren-tasar/). His interests are in religion and politics in Central Asia. We also have a visiting scholar, Vakur Sumer, at the Global Research Institute this year (http://gri.unc.edu/people/vakur-sumer/). His research concerns environmental politics and water management in Turkey. Zeynep Tufekci, from School of Information and Library Science, was a leading tweeter during Gezi Parki protests in Istanbul last summer: see her blog http://technosociology.org/ and on twitter @zeynep.
