Ottoman miniature paintings and philosophy

Evrim Emir (2013)

My research at NIT focused on Ottoman miniature paintings and the philosophy behind that art form. I stayed at NIT in June 2013.

Being at NIT gave me the chance not only to pursue my research, but also to witness the Gezi protests, one of the most momentous occurrences in modern Turkish social and political history. I express my gratitude to NIT, which provided me with an excellent work environment.

I am currently employed as Lecturer at San Francisco State University, where my teaching and research in the field of philosophy are immensely enriched by my stay at NIT.
