Turkish-German Studies

Turkish-German Studies is a new field in the humanities and social sciences that researches and analyzes issues related to Turkish-German relations in both their historic and present forms. The interdisciplinary field investigates the impact of Turkish migrants on the German cultural landscape. Rather than indicating a hybrid culture caught in between two nations, the hyphen in 'Turkish-German' serves as a point of departure for an investigation into the history of relations between Turkey and Germany (and, by extension, the East and West).
