Turkish Embassy Lecture Series

The Lecture Series is a successful experiment in education, community service, entertainment, and art. Having recently completed its second year, the Series has served as a bridge that reinforces mutual understanding, respect and recognition across people of diverse nationalities, cultures and backgrounds. Every lecture builds on a different aspect of Turkey’s rich historical and cultural heritage with the understanding that each culture has its own uniqueness and merits. The series bring the most distinguished scholars, artists, and critics of our time to the Turkish Embassy podium for lectures, seminars, and a variety of related interactions.
