Abstract

The global situation influenced by the ongoing CoViD-19 pandemics and currently theaggression against Ukraine have significantly affected activities of AESOP YoungAcademics and nearly all traditional academic events. Implications have been eithercancellation of numerous networking events or a drastic shift towards online and hybridevents. One could say that us, academics, have gotten used to it and it has become the‘new normal’, however, it is clear that online participation can never fully supersede face-to-face contact. The YA Conference is one of the most important mediums of interactionfor the network. This activity has been canceled in 2020, online in 2021 and will be a hybridevent this year, clearly showing the large difficulties we have been facing.We are very proud to have the 16th Young Academics Conference with the theme “InSearch of Well-Being in Liminality: No Longer-Not Yet” taking place in Istanbul with themajority of participants joining in situ.It is an opportunity to meet new friends and old friends, discuss research and related topicsand lead intellectually stimulating debates with peers as well as more senior colleaguesfrom distinguished institutions. On the other hand, over the past two years, we havelearned to utilize tools that accommodate online participation so that those who cannotjoin, can have a solid experience and advance their academic work.The conference theme is raising an ever more significant issue of wellbeing from thebroadest point of view, including mental well-being. This is, luckily, becoming a seriousdebate topic as young academics are often struggling to keep up with their fellows andmental health issues have been neglected for many. This issue, together with others, suchas peer-reviewing, will be further discussed during the Conference’s accompanying events.
