    Abstract:
    This conference, co-organized by the Istanbul Research Institute and Pera Museum, through local and international collaborations, seeks to offer new insights on the complex layers of Istanbul’s urban landscape. It brings together innovative studies in the fields of environmental history, political ecology, and critical art studies that utilize transdisciplinary methods and transcend predetermined scales and clearly delineated boundaries between the histories and stories of humans, nonhumans, and the built environment. It puts academics, artists, activists, policymakers, and the public in a dialogue on Istanbul’s environment, especially in a time when short- and long-term environmental risks are increasing on an unprecedented scale. Based on the new networks created at the conference, the organizers aspire to achieve continued collaboration with organizations and collectives working on Istanbul’s environment, and to raise awareness among Istanbul’s residents, policymakers, and academics on the city’s historical and current environmental issues, the agency of nonhuman actors in the making of the city, and the ways in which we can reorient our thinking on Istanbul toward environmental justice and inclusivity.
