This summer I’ll get another chance to work with my colleagues at Anadolu University in Turkey when we organise a research workshop on gender-based violence among Syrian refugees. The workshop is sponsored by the British Council’s Researcher Links programme and will aim to bring together early-career researchers from the UK and Turkey to discuss the topic and establish long-term connections. I’ll post more updates as they become available and we develop the programme of the event.
This June, a months-long collaboration between Anadolu University’s Nezih Orhon, Ayhan Yilmaz, Yavuz Tuna, and Ertan Dogan, Ohio University’s Yusuf Kalyango Jr. and me (representing University of Iowa) came to a happy conclusion. Anadolu University hosted its first International Conference on Global Health and Crisis Communication, June 19-21 in Eskisehir, Turkey.
While on my summer vacation in Bulgaria, I had a brief work encounter with my friend Dr Yusuf Kalyango Jr in Turkey. We visited Anadolu University in Eskisehir representing Ohio University’s Institute for International Journalism, where I am a member of the advisory board and Yusuf is the director.
