History, as a discipline, has undergone many changes over the past decades in terms of its approaches, methodology and sources. With this awareness, ŞEHİR History PhD Program offers a curriculum that adopts an interdisciplinary and comparative approach.
History writing styles generated in international academic circles in interpreting history resources offer a non-ignorable frame. It should be a responsibility of the Turkish historiography featuring a rich historical material also to improve the domestic history writing styles and include them in the general history writing.
