26. JUNI 2020

Wie lässt sich kultur-, fach- und länderübergreifend forschen? Was bewegt Wissenschaftler und wie finden sie zusammen? „Wissen entgrenzen“ – so heißt ein groß angelegtes Forschungsvorhaben der Max Weber Stiftung. Klares Ziel des Förderprojekts ist die Erschließung innovativer Forschungsfelder in globalen Kooperationen und vernetzten Kontexten.

12 JUNE 2020 | Authors: Brian Johnson, Richard Wittmann

What do a famous German engineer, American author, Hungarian soldier, British scholar, and Swiss brewer who left their mark on Istanbul and beyond have in common with many ordinary people whose lives and links to the city are long forgotten? All of them, both the distinguished and the anonymous, now rest in the Feriköy Protestant Cemetery.

5 HAZİRAN 2020 | Görüşmeciler: Melike Şahinol ve Raoul Motika

‘İnsan Geliştirme’ kavramını kısa ve özlü bir şekilde tanımlar mısınız? Tedavi amaçlı veya tedavi amaçlı olmayan, ama geliştirme hedefli olarak insan performansına çeşitli maddelerin kullanımı yoluyla ya da fenni-teknolojik taraftan mümkün kılınan insan bedenine yapılan müdahaleler ve modifikasyonlar.

A visual life narrative of 1830s Ottoman Izmir/Smyrna: The Harvard Fulgenzi Album

29 MAY 2020 | Author: Richard Wittmann

A beautiful album, conceived in Smyrna, modern-day Izmir, blends the Ottoman world of the mid-19th century with that of the new national state of Greece. This combination constitutes the subject of the 25 illustrations which portray the human form and landscape on both sides of the Aegean during those fateful years that were marked by the reforms carried out by Sultan Mahmud II (reign 1808-1839) and the creation of the newly established Greek state. The Collection de costumes civils et militaires, scènes populaires, et vues de l’Asie-Mineure Album (1836-38) at Harvard University’s Fine Arts Library is the fourth volume in the publication series Memoria. Fontes minores ad Historiam Imperii Ottomanici Pertinentes. The album was edited by the art historian Gwendolyn Collaço.

What does the grand piano in the corner mean? Classical music in Turkish TV series

22 MAY 2020 | Author: Nevin Şahin

In an elegant fine-dine restaurant, Zeynep Yılmaz (Sevda Erginci) and Alihan Taşdemir (Onur Tuna) are diving into a small talk on their idiosyncratic differences. Alihan, the owner of a big aviation company, is an NYU graduate and the son of a rich family whose sister was once married to the director of the biggest conglomerate, “the King” Halit Argun (Talat Bulut). Alihan tells how much he enjoys being among crowds while Zeynep, an executive assistant who happened to start working for Alihan when he bought the company she was working at, living in a rented apartment with her sister in a rather poor neighborhood of housewives in Cihangir, talks about her way of relaxing alone at home.

Ali Ufuki und die Pest von 1648

8. MAI 2020 | Autorin: Judith Haug

Häufig fragen wir derzeit unsere Mitmenschen und uns selbst, wie wir mit der Pandemie-Situation zurechtkommen, und finden viele unterschiedliche Antworten und Lösungen. Die Informationen, die uns zur Verfügung stehen, sind zahlreich, manchmal widersprüchlich, und oft verwirrend. Aber wie lebte man mit der Bedrohung durch Seuchen zu früheren Zeiten, als das Verständnis von der Entstehung und Verbreitung ansteckender Krankheiten gering war und die Aussicht auf Genesung weniger vom wissenschaftlich nachweisbaren Erfolg der Heilbehandlungen als vom Zufall abhing?
