This project focuses on the Jewish German philologist Erich Auerbach, a pivotal figure in the humanities who after his dismissal from Germany in 1936 emigrated to Turkey. His itinerant life and the transnational nature of his work call for an investigation into the relationship between the humanities and concepts of modernity, nation, and exile in East and West. This book project raises questions about the role of the émigré in the Europeanization of Turkey, the metamorphosis of German philology in a transnational context, the impact of National Socialists on Turkish universities, and the place of the Jewish emigrant in Turkish historiography.
