Call for Book Proposals: Contemporary Turkey Book Series

• CALL FOR MANUSCRIPTS AND BOOK PROPOSALS: I.B.Tauris and the British Institute at Ankara are seeking book proposals for the Contemporary Turkey academic book series.

The Contemporary Turkey monograph series is a joint initiative by the British Institute at Ankara (BIAA), internationally renowned for its support of independent academic research, and leading publisher of Middle East and Turkish Studies I.B. Tauris, an imprint of Bloomsbury Academic.
