Bernd Brunner (2016) is writing his sixth book, with the working title: “The World in Istanbul.” Its subject is refugees, migrants and expats—Syrians, Americans, Iranians, Russians, Japanese and others—living in Istanbul and trying to adapt to Turkish culture and society under highly strained political circumstances. His work is in part based on an essay he wrote for Lapham’s Quarterly. Bernd, a native Berliner, has among others also written on Germans emigrating to America before.
Works in Progress is a podcast dedicated to advancing deeply rooted longform nonfiction about the most pressing issues of the day. In this series, fellows of the Carey Institute Nonfiction Program talk with our host Dennis Winslow about the work they are doing to advance social, political, health, environmental, human rights and justice topics throughout the world. At the Carey Institute we believe an informed, educated and engaged citizenry is essential to the functioning of democratic society. We invite you to listen and be a part of it.
