On Chronologics and Eurochronology – An Interview with Özen Nergis Dolcerocca
The Annual Conference 2017 “Chronologics: Periodisation in a Global Context” of the Forum Transregionale Studien and the Max Weber Stiftung took place in Berlin, 7-9 December 2017. The conference was convened by Thomas Maissen (Deutsches Historisches Institut Paris), Barbara Mittler (Heidelberger Centrum für Transkulturelle Studien, Forum Transregionale Studien), and Pierre Monnet (Institut franco-allemand de sciences historiques et sociales).The event was a part of the strategic cooperation between the Forum Transregionale Studien and the Max Weber Stiftung – Deutsche geisteswissenschaftliche Institute im Ausland.
Over thirty international researchers were approaching the overarching theme of Chronologics from different academic and regional angles. One of them was Özen Nergis Dolcerocca from Koç University in Istanbul. She is an assistant professor of comparative literature and gained her PhD in 2015 from New York University. Her research interests include comparative modernisms, philosophy of time and 19th- and 20th-century Turkish and French literatures.
During the conference, we found the time to have a chat with her about her research and we also talked about the first impressions from the ongoing event.
