About STAGING-ABJECTION: Conducted at Kadir Has University, Faculty of Communication under the direction of Dr. Rüstem Ertuğ Altınay, Staging National Abjection: Theatre and Politics in Turkey and Its Diasporas is a five-year research project funded by the European Research Council’s Starting Grants Program with a 1.5 million Euro grant. Combining the transdisciplinary approach of performance studies with a rigorous research program, the project aims to be one of the most comprehensive critical studies on minoritarian theatre practices in Turkey and its diasporas, and put Turkey on the map of global theatre studies while asking questions of broader theoretical and methodological relevance.
