Annual of İstanbul Studies

İstanbul holds a leading place among research areas of contemporary sociology and urban design. In the wide spectrum of research fields, ranging from archaeology to history, from art to literature, and from religious culture to daily life, the city provides answers to humanity’s fundamental queries. Is this merely a coincidence or a mesh of problems in dire need of a resolution, stratified throughout history from the past to present? If our answer entails resolving this mesh of problems on the scale of İstanbul, then we can certainly call for a common denominator through which diverse opinions and approaches can counter with one another. The Annual Journal of İstanbul Research Institute thus begins its publishing life to compensate for this need in terms of modern scientific thought.
