The third and last day of a high school “Social Sciences Summit for Prospective Students,” to be held over 4-5-6 August 2018 at Istanbul’s Ataşehir Grand Sheraton Hotel, has been set apart for expansive conversations with senior academics from various disciplines.

In this framework, the IHU History Department has invited Prof. Mehmet İpşirli (of the Department of History at Medipol University) to take part in a History panel on Monday, 6 August. Prof İpşirli and IHU History Department Chair Halil Berktay will be talking face to face and reflecting on what it means to be a historian, how they carry out their trade, how they choose their research topics, what they feel and think as they keep working on their materials, and how they go about tackling whatever problems may confront them.
