Do you have research papers, which you want to publish or present,
but you could not find a chance to do it? Now here is your chance! We,
the students of the Department of Political Science and International
Relations, are starting a Student Symposium. We are asking for your best
papers. Papers can be on any topic within the discipline of Political
Science and International Relations. Choose one of your best paper,
which you valued and, prepared most and, written in English. Papers
will be evaluated by the editorial board, which includes Political
Science and International Relations department’ professors. If your
paper gets acceptance you will be presenting your paper at the Student
Symposium. Junior and senior undergraduate students and master students
of the Political Science and International Relations department are all
welcomed! Research papers can be about any topic within the Political
Science and International Relations discipline. Those who are studying
at different departments but having minor or double majors at the
Political Science and International Relations department can also apply
with an interdisciplinary research paper, without being irrelevant to
Political Science and International Relations’ issues.
of this Student Symposium is to improve students’ presentation skills,
allow them to explain their ideas, interact with other department
students and professors within an academic environment. Student
Symposium will provide us feedbacks from professors, and knowledge
sharing on various subjects among students. We all do feel pressure
whenever we see a presentation or academic research paper requirement in
our course syllabuses. Sometimes random questions, which approached by
professors, caught us when we are not ready. University can be one way
to get rid of or moderate some of these difficulties. Those, who wish to
pursue their graduate studies, think about your future master
dissertation and T.A. duties, this departmental student symposium can
really help you. Or those, who seek a career at the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs, newspapers, think tanks, or any other international or
governmental organizations an initial step of presenting your academic
article, can be beneficial for your future plans. What can make this
Student Symposium efficient is that its framework for us to stand up and
present our articles. Since Political Science and International
Relations students’ are all familiar to each other and since our
departmental courses requires from us to write extreme amount research
papers, then why not we are not using these as an opportunity? Check
your pieces from your laptop, choose the best one you think and, send it
to us. Lastly, you can choose to conduct your presentation either in
English or Turkish. However, presentations in English are preferred in
