We are pleased to invite you to the workshop "Cool Istanbul: Urban Enclosures and Resistances" to be held in SALT Galata, Istanbul, Turkey, on November 7-8, 2013. This workshop aims to discuss the urban issues related to the imaginations of Istanbul as a cool city as it is produced, consumed and performed. We would like to focus on the imaginations of the city as it is produced by city marketing agencies, featured on the travel sections of newspapers, as it appears in the discourses of local and central governments and as it is consumed by tourists. We also would like to highlight the ways in which “cool Istanbul” is performed in everyday life by those who live in, pass through, visit, experience and live its spaces. Please see http://www.cool-istanbul.net/ for the workshop program. We look forward to seeing you there.
