Greetings!  I was lucky enough to spend a couple of weeks as a tourist in western Turkey last year -- a wonderful experience in every respect!  I have read a lot about Turkey, especially its history and prehistory, and hope to return to see more firsthand!

P.S.: any suggestion about studing turkish language? (Just to start...)

Considering Crescenzo's expectation from this group,

I think we may think about an interactive FAQ document for freshies for Turkish Studies, especially who are planning to conduct research in Turkey.

I'm an italian student of anthropology interested in gender studies and urban anthropology, but I just started to study turkish society.
Then... Thank you for this group. I'm sure it will be an excellent help for me.

Regards at all Turkey scholars,
I'm currently in Karabakh region in which the public perception of negotiation treatments about normalizing relations and opening boundaries between Armenia and Turkey is truly particular...
