A year after Lucas and his team were in Turkey – where he talks with, among others, Engin Önder – he goes back to Istanbul. On 11 June 2016, Lucas stands with his lecture performance ‘De Man in Europe ‘ in Kumbaracı50 for the Dutch Institute in Turkey (NIT). The Netherlands Institute in Turkey is a research center dedicated to the study of Turkey and surrounding regions through the ages. It conducts historical and archaeological research, and aims to support studies in the humanities and social sciences that have a bearing on Turkey, by scholars as well as students, from the Netherlands and other countries.
