Çakırlar’s research practice (2012-2020) has challenged cultural stereotypes, promoted intercultural dialogue and supported international circulation of cultural forms and practices. The impact builds organically on Dr. Çakırlar’s research in global queer theory and the transnational mobility of contemporary arts, as expressed in publications and deployed in pedagogic contexts, and collaborative work with international art practitioners and institutions. The research demonstrates impact achieved through cross-cultural dialogue between the West and Turkey in four key areas: shaping the HE curriculum and broadening understandings of LGBTQ issues in Turkey; mentoring Turkish students inspired by LGBTQ practice by supporting their development as academics, activists and policy makers; enabling and promoting international mobility of Turkey-based art practitioners’ work; and facilitating cross-cultural exchange and international collaboration between UK-based cultural practitioners and Turkey-based artists through UK-based projects.
