If you’ve been paying close attention to the Toynbee Prize Foundation’s website, you’ll have seen some changes to our Board of Trustees, as we seek to adjust our Board membership to reflect the more and more international landscape of global history writing today. Among several of our new Trustees is Professor Selçuk Esenbel of Boğaziçi University in Istanbul, Turkey.
Readers may know Esenbel best for her scholarship in Asian history, but as the Director of the Asian Studies Program at Boğaziçi, she recently hosted a conference for M.A. students, showcasing the next-generation research being carried out at the university. The conference program is available here. We look forward to following many of the participants as they develop their work in the future!
