Caucasus Research Resource Center (CRRC)-Armenia invites you to a discussion on

“It Takes One to Know One:
The Role of Culture in (Reinstituting) Armenian-Turkish Relations”

to be facilitated by Emine Onaran İncirlioğlu (Hrant Dink Fellow, Turkey-Armenia Fellowship Scheme)

The discussion will outline preliminary insights on Armenian and Turkish “cultures” based on participant observation in Turkey and Armenia, as well as following media coverage from Turkish and Armenian “sides.” Based on the premise that “culture” is contextual, flexible, diverse, interpretive, dynamic and adaptive in the long run, the research seeks cultural similarities between Armenians and Turks while pointing out differences among each society. The overall goal of the research is to aidreinstitute the Armenian-Turkish normalization.

Dr. Emine Onaran İncirlioğlu is a Hrant Dink Fellow at CRRC-Armenia, focusing on Armenian-Turkish relations in her recent research. She is a professor of Sociocultural Anthropology who has done ethnographic fieldwork on gender relations in rural Central Anatolia, and on Gypsy/Roma organizations. As an architect/anthropologist Dr. İncirlioğlu has taught at various universities in the USA, UK and Turkey. For more information, please, visit Prof. İncirlioğlu’s personal academic website.
