 Long considered the crossroads between “East” and “West,” Turkey is a NATO ally, and, in November, Turkey and the European Union re-started accession talks with the European Union after a decade-long hiatus.  

Turkey is also redefining its role in the Middle East and in the Islamic world, while increasingly embroiled in civil wars on its borders.  Join us to learn more about this important country and what’s at stake in these volatile dynamics
Dr. Carole Woodall is an assistant professor of modern Middle East history in the Department of History and Women’s and Ethnic Studies Program at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. She earned her PhD in History and Middle East and Islamic Studies from New York University. Her research, which has appeared in Comparative Studies of South Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, the International Journal for Middle East Studies, for several ABC-CLIO reference work projects, and edited books, focuses on transnationalism, popular culture, and the urban environment in interwar Istanbul. Currently, she is writing her first book, The Decadent Modern: Cocaine, Jazz, and the Charleston in 1920s Istanbul, and is also part of a Turkish-US collaborative transmedia-documentary project based on her work on early jazz in Istanbul.
