(15 - 17 November 2019 / Gazi University, Ankara)


              Dear Researchers,

              The first of the International Turkish - Russian World Academic Research Congresses (UTRAK) was held on  December 14-16, 2018 in Ankara, with the participation and hosting of Turkish Historical Society, Ahmet Yesevi University and Ankara Yıldırım Beyazıt University, with the invitees, St Petersburg State University and Kazan State University.  The papers presented in this Congress have been published in 3 volumes and submitted to the benefit of the scientific world.  The printed forms of the proceedings were published by Berikan Publishing House and they are also made available in our Congress page in electronic format.
             The second Congress will be held between 15 - 17 November 2019 at the academic hosting of Gazi University (Ankara) again with the contributions of the Turkish Historical Society (TTK) and Ahmet Yesevi University. In this Congress, Gazi University is breaking a new ground between the two  neighboring countries, Russia and Turkey, by hosting Lomonosov Moscow State University.  

               Continued cooperation between the leading state universities of the two neighboring countries - that will be established for the first time in this congress - will bring the Congress and the academics and intellectual life in Turkey into a key position in the production and sharing of knowledge between the Western world and the geography of Russia.  

               Our basic objective in this Congress is to bring together scientists working on Russia, Turkey and on the peripheral geographies of these two states.  The invitees to the Congress consist of researchers/scholars mainly from Turkey and Russia, as well as from many different countries, working on the history of Russia.

                  While the general subjects of the papers that will be presented at the Congress are listed on the relevant field of our website, participations from all fields of history, sociology, philosophy, law, literature, economics, finance, culture and arts are welcome. As in the previous Congress, the papers to be presented at the Congress will be printed and published in book format shortly after their evaluation by the Board of Science.

              You are welcome to attend, participate and contribute to the 2nd International Congress on Academic Research of the Turkish-Russian World (UTRAK) which will be hosted by Gazi University in 15 to 17th of November, 2019.
