Dear Blickwechsel friends,
We hope you had a good and healthy start into the new year. We at Blickwechsel and the Einstein Fellows Research Group are starting the year with some good news which we want to share with you in this newsletter.
Most importantly we are happy to announce that a new call for applications at Einstein's "Academic Freedom Programme" is out now. We are looking forward to receiving applications until January 31, 2020.
At the same time we are welcoming two new fellows in our team who joined us in January: Latife Akyüz and Zafer Yılmaz are now part of the Einstein-team. Welcome aboard!
In addition to that this newsletter will inform you about recent publications of members of our team and the announcement of the winners of 2019's "Bosphorus Prize" essay contest.
As in 2019, we're looking forward to welcoming you at one or more of the events within the framework of the Blickwechsel programme. Be prepared for an event the evening before International Women's Day and the next Jour Fixe panel discussion on press freedom in Turkey coming later this spring. We'll keep you updated and share further information with you on these two and more events as soon as possible.
All the best for 2020 and best wishes,
the Blickwechsel team
Call for Applications at HU's Einstein Fellows Research Group

Latife Akyüz and Zafer Yılmaz have joined the Einstein Fellows Research Group
We are happy to announce that Latife Akyüz and Zafer Yılmaz have joined the Einstein Fellows Research Group in January 2020.
Under the title "Trans-Exile Intellectuals: 'Continuities and Breaks in Knowledge Production Processes in Transnational Social Space'", Latife's research will look into the difficulties of exiled academics who fled from Turkey after the coup attempt in July 2016.
Zafer's research examines the impacts of state of emergency and martial law policies on the constitutionalism and legal and constitutional foundations of citizenship in Turkey under the title "The Genealogy of Turkish 'Exceptional' State: The State of Emergency Policies, Constitutionalism and Citizenship in Turkey".
