This lecture, as part of the Sociobord Lecture Series, features a conversation with Nuri Korkmaz.

This lecture series seeks to launch a dialogue between borderland studies and welfare studies by exploring new approaches to research on social welfare in culturally and ethnically diverse border regions.

Eight young to mid-career scholars will present their own cutting-edge research alongside larger reflections on the legacies of empire in post-imperial borderlands, the role of local actors – primarily families and associations – in shaping welfare systems, how competition for local power affects the treatment of minorities, and the significance of borderlands for local, national and global histories.
