Mexico and Turkey are key nations in the recent social and political upheavals that have shaken public life in North America and Europe, yet outsiders often misunderstand the complex changes that are transforming both of these countries.  Join the Program in the Humanities for a Dialogues seminar with professors Cecilia Martinez-Gallardo and Cemil Aydin of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to explore the tensions within Mexican and Turkish societies and the influence of these nations on contemporary politics in the United States and Europe. The seminar will include a comparative discussion of why the transitions in Mexico and Turkey are affecting transnational exchanges and attracting international attention.

The tuition is $65. Registration is required for this seminar. Please note registered participants will receive an email with all the Dialogues seminar information a week before the program date. Please contact the program with questions about this seminar.

This event is a Dialogues Seminar of the Program in the Humanities at UNC-Chapel Hill in collaboration with the Institute for the Study of the Americas and the Carolina Center for the Study of the Middle East and Muslim Civilizations. It is co-sponsored by the General Alumni Association.
