Message from IFTR's Executive Committee regarding the University of Ankara

The Executive Committee of the International Federation for Theatre Research protests the recent 'exportation' of our colleagues from the University of Ankara, Turkey.   These mass dismissals not only undermine Turkey's national educational system and the future of theatre studies in that country but also jeopardize the international exchange to which our Federation and its constitution are committed.  We therefore protest the effective dismantling of University of Ankara's Theatre Department and request that our colleagues be returned to their posts immediately.
