Imagining the Turkish House

Carel Bertram, M.A., Near East Studies; Ph.D., Art and Architecture of the Middle East
Bonnie Joy Kaslan, Honorary Consul General for the Republic of Turkey in the SF Bay Area - Moderator

Bertram will discuss how Ottoman and Turkish houses became objects of memory, carrying personal and political meanings through periods of radical change. She has a particular interest in the poetics of space – how spaces are felt as well as built, as well as the richness and diversity of Islamic cultures. Bertram has worked extensively with Christians, Jews and Muslims in Bosnia.
