History Takes Place: Istanbul seeks to open up a new perspective on Istanbul, not throughnarrative or typical images of East and West, but through a series of spontaneous shots. Contributions by young academics from various disciplines – history, cultural and social sciences, as well as geography, architecture, and urban planning – address contested histories and memories, experiences of home and exile, or of exclusion and resistance in the public sphere. The reader is invited to rethink the relationship between the “historical past” and the “ethnographic present” and at the same time to see how “history” is always in the making in Istanbul.
