> Istanbul Bilgi University Film and TV Department will be holding a

> conference, which  will be held June 18-20, 1999, will focus on the
> multiple identities and the multicultural facets of the Turkish
> cinema, with a tentative title of "Film Theory Visits Turkish Cinema".

> who are researching and theorizing many of the aspects of national
> cinemas.

> presentations in the mornings, which will be approaching the subject
> from a broader persperctive, and workshops focusing on more specialized
> topics in the afternoons.

>
> Evolution of Narrative Tools in Turkish Cinema
> Unberable Vagueness of Social Spaces
> Representation of Racial and Ethnic Minorities

> Refinement of these topics is still in progress.  The number of
> workshops will be determined in accordance with the interest shown, so
