Seminer, 31 Mayıs Perşembe günü saat 14:00-18:00 arasında Hollanda Enstitüsü'nde gerçekleşiyor.
Istanbul, like many other urban centers, is an aspiring global city. A plethora of social, cultural and economic changes can be observed in this city—affecting its heritage— and it is perhaps tempting to assume that they only occur here and nowhere else in the world. Nothing is less true.
The same kind of urban changes are found in numerous other cities, but they manifest themselves in ever-changing, historically specific shapes. By presenting cases from Istanbul, Amsterdam, Melbourne and Beijing this seminar aims at exploring the interrelationship of general and specific processes and outcomes.
