The Humanities Center is sponsoring a second round of  the Orhan Pamuk Reading Group, to be led by Prof. Sevinç Türkkan of Religion & Classics.  This semester the group will read and discuss Pamuk's Istanbul: Memories and the City, a memoir of the author’s life in a city that bridges East and West, past and future, tradition and experience.

The group will meet on Thursday evenings, 5 to 6 PM, in the Humanities Center.  Sessions are planned for February 15th and 22nd, and March 1st, 8th and 22nd.  The final meeting (day and time TBA) will include a visit to the George Eastman Museum Archive, with its amazing 19th century photographs of Istanbul.
