Roundtable: S. Akturk's Regimes of Ethnicity and Nationhood
This roundtable will examine why ethnic policies change.
When: Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014, 4 p.m.
Where: UCSB, Santa Barbara
Age limit: Not available
Located in the Lane Room, 3rd floor, Ellison Hall.
This roundtable will focus on Sener Akturk’s Regimes of Ethnicity and Nationhood in Germany, Russia, and Turkey, which examines why ethnic policies change. In Germany, the case is why the citizenship law changed. In Turkey, why Kurdish language use and publication became possible. Finally, in Russia, why passport nationality was removed from passports. Akturk’s argument is that counter elites were in power, a new discourse arose, and a political hegemony existed which made changes from monoethnic, multiethnic, or antiethnic regimes possible. The roundtable is open to all. Among those participating are UCSB Professors Heather Stoll (Political Science), Harold Marcuse (History), and Cynthia Kaplan (Political Science).
