By
From page A5 | November 12, 2013 |

The UC Davis Humanities Institute’s Turkey Studies Research Cluster will present a panel discussion Thursday on “The Others Mobilized: Gezi & the Present Moment in Turkey.” It will run from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Technocultural Studies Building, also known as the Art Annex, on the UCD campus. Admission is free.

Four scholars will explore multiple facets of the summer Gezi protests, the Kurdish and the LGBT movements and the broad possibilities, individually and collectively, of Turkey’s pluralistic movements of resistance. They are:

* Evren Savci, assistant professor of women and gender studies at San Francisco State University, who is working on a book titled “Queer in Translation: Paradoxes of Westernization and Sexual Others in the Turkish Nation”;

* Cihan Tugal, associate professor of sociology at UC Berkeley, who is the author of a book on the AKP, the governing party in Turkey, titled “Passive Revolution: Absorbing the Islamic Challenge to Capitalism”;

* Heghnar Watenpaugh, associate professor of art history at UCD, who is the author of the award-winning “The Image of an Ottoman City: Imperial Architecture and Urban Experience in Aleppo in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries”; and

* Nicole Watts, associate professor of political science at San Francisco State University, who is the author of “Activists in Office: Kurdish Politics and Protest in Turkey” and the co-editor of “Negotiating Political Power in Turkey: Breaking up the Party.”
