About

Founded within the body of the Rectorship of Ege University, the European Languages and Cultures Research and Application Centre (ADIKAM) focuses on analyzing the language, literature and cultures of various European countries within the field of academic research. In terms of intellectual disciplines, it is firmly rooted in the humanities with strong literary and language components. The inclusion of the words “language” in the Center’s name signals our commitment to “translingual and transcultural competency,” i.e. the ability to work with and across the multilingual reality that is Europe. The aims of the centre are: to develop communication, to encourage mutual research and studies, to collaborate through translation, and to arrange scientific and cultural meetings. ADİKAM’s main scope of applications are centered on:
* Conducting basic and applied research on European languages and cultures and forming national and international collaborations,
* Encouraging scientific projects related to culture and language,
* Collaborating with Ministries such as the Ministries of National Education, Tourism and Culture,
* Organising national and international scientific gatherings such as panels, seminars, symposium, conferences and congresses related to the research fields of languages and cultures.
The Center plays an important role in evolving our comprehension of the complex social transformations of European languages and cultures. Research and seminars at the Center consistently address larger themes of regional integration and globalization focusing on cultural diversity.
