VEKAM Ephemera Workshop

As an outcome of the 1st International Ephemera Studies Symposium which was hosted by VEKAM in 2018, it was realized that numerous researchers and academicians have been conducting various studies to specialize in different subfields of ephemera studies. For the purpose of providing a tangible and permanent contribution to establishing a theoretically and methodologically scientific and sustainable basis for the research on ephemeral material, as well as supporting the continuity of the communication and collaboration among different researchers, this workshop will aspire to investigate the ephemeral sources (about architecture, history, culture, commercial activities, social life, entertainment, tourism, everyday life, etc.).

The primary aim of the workshop is to support the participants—who conduct various researches in different academic disciplines—in discovering, discussing and adopting different ideas, techniques and skills that they will use in their studies about primary ephemeral sources. It also aims to make a significant contribution to the sustainability of ephemera studies which has gained a new impetus as a consequence of the above-mentioned symposium.


The applications which comprise ephemeral primary sources along with tangible information and substantial methods will be included in the workshop. During the workshop, the participants from the same/ similar disciplines will work together in homogenous groups, will share the outcomes about their theories and methods with other groups by the end of the workshop, and the entire information about the ephemeral sources.

The program will be held with a closed group.
