Kaba Kopya: An ongoing research project into the work of the Solidarity Academies in Turkey: a network of alternative universities and schools that have been formed by the academics fired from their jobs following the 2016 coup. This video shows the ‘Court House Academy’, where academics on trial for ‘supporting terrorism’ use the platform of their defense as a chance to talk about the relationship of academia to actual society. Other academics, and former students pack the court for each trial, turning it into an impromptu lecture hall.
