  • 09:30Symposium on the Epigraphies of Anatolia their histories and their future 24-27 April 2018
    place AKMED Conference Hall

    The Symposium on the “Epigraphies of Anatolia: their histories and their future” will be held 24-27 April 2018 in the Koç University Suna & İnan Kıraç Research Center for Mediterranean Civilizations at Antalya, with the participation of scholars from Turkey and several other European countries. For several millennia most of the civilisations of Anatolia used inscription on stone to preserve important texts – whether public documents or private commemorations. While this procedure is found in many civilisations across the world, the particular wealth of Anatolia in high-quality stones and marbles has ensured an exceptionally rich harvest of texts. Over the last couple of centuries, work on these documents has helped us understand more and more of this deep and multi-layered historical heritage, which is constantly developing and enriching our understanding. The aim of the symposium is to allow experts who work on the inscribed texts of different cultures to present their work and compare their experiences, building a sense of the history of the epigraphic discipline. During the symposium we intend to look at how earlier generations have interacted with such texts by tracing the steady development of methodologies. We will examine how inscribed texts have introduced us to languages which had been unread for several millennia. Finally, we will look at how we can teach the necessary skills and find ways to offer the fullest possible access, both in and beyond Turkey, to this unique storehouse of knowledge. It is AKMED’s intention to publish the papers written for the symposium.

  • 14:00KOLT Workshop – Supporting Critical Thinking across the Disciplines: Methods for Student-Centered Teaching
    place Student Council Room, Student Center (ÖMER), Next to Özsüt

    ABOUT WORKSHOP: Teachers of all disciplines want students to practice “critical thinking”: going beyond the accumulation of information and actively exploring that information, considering its implications, and integrating it into existing knowledge. Among many “high-impact practices” in higher education, there is plentiful evidence that engaging students in the learning process yields stronger gains in critical thinking than simply providing them with information. The session will include several activities designed to demonstrate and apply the strategies in the context of participants’ own courses. SHORT BIO: Chris Anson is Distinguished University Professor and Director of the Campus Writing and Speaking Program at North Carolina State University, where he teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in language, composition, and literacy and works with faculty across the disciplines to enhance writing and speaking instruction. He has published fifteen books and over 120 articles and book chapters relating to writing and has spoken widely across the U.S. and in 30 other countries. He serves on the editorial boards of seven peer-reviewed journals. He has received numerous teaching awards and has participated in over $2 million in grants. He is Past Chair of the Conference on College Composition and Communication and Past President of the Council of Writing Program Administrators, and he was recently elected to the Steering Committee of the International Society for the Advancement of Writing Research.
