Autonomy and Dependence in the Family: Turkey and Sweden in Critical Perspective

By Rita Liljeström; Elisabeth Özdalga | Go to book overview

Acknowledgment

This book has come about as a result of a number of seminars and workshops in Turkey and Sweden. The first such events took place at the Middle East Technical University in Ankara during the fall of 1998, and was immediately followed by a seminar at the Swedish Research Institute in Istanbul. These events were associated with the visit by some of the Swedish contributors to this volume to Turkey in order to present Swedish family and gender research to Turkish students and faculty.

The second meeting was held at Göteborg University in Sweden in February 1999. On this occasion, the tables were turned, and it was the Turkish participants who presented Turkish family and gender research to a Swedish academic audience. In addition, the first outline to the present volume was agreed to at a two-day workshop. The third gathering was at the Swedish Research Institute in Istanbul in November 1999, where the final drafts of this volume were discussed.

Major financial support for this venture came from the Swedish Institute in Stockholm, which has generously supported this project at every stage, including publication. We are especially grateful for their willing cooperation. We also want to express our thanks to all the other institutions that have supported this project, both logistically and otherwise: the Middle East Technical University in Ankara; Göteborg University, especially the Department of Sociology; and the Swedish Research Institute in Istanbul, both the board of trustees in Stockholm and the personnel at the Dragoman House in Istanbul. Special thanks are due to the Swedish Consulate General in Istanbul for contributing to the publication of this volume.

We are also grateful to Esra Özcan of the Foundation for the Support of Women's Work for her contributions to the Appendix, to the language-editor Peter Colenbrander, and to the copy-editors, especially Saliha Bilginer, at the History Foundation in Istanbul. Thanks are also owed to those who have allowed us access to their family albums for illustrations for this book.

Istanbul and Stockholm in June 2002.
