Hesperus is Bosphorus (love the title!) is a new group blog by philosophers in and from Turkey. There is a very vibrant community of Anglophone philosophers in Turkey, with several Anglophone philosophy departments, and lots of interesting activities and events being organized. And of course, Istanbul is a fantastic city (which I had the pleasure of visiting for the first time last year), as are other parts of Turkey (or so I'm told, not having visited the rest of the country for now). So I'd say it's worth keeping an eye on what they are up to over there and considering stopping by at some point.
