On July 15, 2016 the Turkish military launched a coup attempt in a bid to topple the government of President Recep Erdogan. The coup d'état failed, resulting in a wide-spread purge of military, police, judges, and prosecutors. This panel features three faculty experts: Erdem Cipa (history), Fatma Müge Göçek, (sociology and women’s studies) and Christiane Gruber (Islamic art), who will explore and explain the context, causes, and potential effects of the failed Turkish coup.
