IDEA, established in 2005 by the Turkish national association for English studies as a member of ESSE (The European Society for the Study of English), is the largest and most comprehensive venue for the free exchange and dissemination of ideas on literary, language, and cultural studies in Turkey. IDEA aims at bringing together academics working in the fields of linguistics, literature, language teaching, and cultural studies. It is held at a different university in Turkey each year, and attended by scholars from around the world as well as around the country.
