Istanbul Department

The Department was founded on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Institute in 1929, but it had predecessors that served as stations for excavations conducted on the western coast. Since 1989, the department has been accommodated in a portion of the building that once served as the German embassy (today the German Consulate Istanbul). Its field of research includes projects ranging from prehistoric Asia Minor and Thrace to the Ottoman period.

Wirtschaft als Machtbasis – Vormoderne Wirtschaftssysteme in Anatolien

3. Wissenschaftliches Netzwerk an der Abteilung Istanbul (2012/2013)

Die naturräumlichen und politischen Voraussetzungen für die Herausbildung vormoderner Wirtschaftsräume in Anatolien konnten unterschiedlicher kaum sein. Vor dem Hintergrund dieser Diversität sollen im Rahmen des Netzwerkes Grundmuster und Mechanismen vormoderner Wirtschaftssysteme analysiert, miteinander in Beziehung gesetzt und allgemeine Faktoren von spezifischen Faktoren einzelner Regionen unterschieden werden.

 Events

During the winter season a series of public evening lectures is intended to inform the public on the current research of scientists from Turkey and abroad. A second series of lectures, the so-called 'Hauskolloquien', gives young scientists the opportunity to present the results of their latest investigations. In addition, in early spring a series of guided tours to monuments, city quarters and museums in Istanbul takes place (for detailed information on the schedules see above).

If you wish to receive informations on our lectures and other events per e-mail, send a short note to our office.
