VIDEO: Reşat Kasaba: “One-Hundred Years of Rural-Urban Relations in Turkey”
To mark both the 100th Anniversary of the Turkish Republic and our own 10th Anniversary, SUITS brought together three leading scholars, whose writings have shaped how the field of Turkish Studies is understood.
The first of the videos from SUITS' 10th anniversary event is now available. These talks look back on the past century and forward to the years to come, offering a variety of perspectives on the changes, challenges, continuities, and possible futures for the Turkish Republic.
Other videos will be released shortly.

In his lecture, Professor Kasaba discusses five key stages in this transition, their successes, failures, and implications for state and society.
